Hovering around a public power outlet - at an airport, coffee shop, book store, etc - waiting for another person to unplug their laptop or phone so you can plug in and charge up.
"Yeah, I'm power lurking at Barnes and Noble. My laptop battery is almost toast. There's one outlet but a dude is using it for his phone and laptop. I gotta hover and jump on it as soon as he splits."

This is when you’re in a ZOOM/video meeting with people you don’t know well (usually during a pandemic) and you’re bored so you want to leave. You don’t really know how to exit gracefully, so you get all anxious and continue to hang out: the “panic lurk”.
My friend just had a Zoom Bday party and I didn’t know anyone.

I was bored and wanted to go, but didn’t want to offend her so I just panic lurked.

I almost called the police because some creeper was following me, but he was just doing the parking lurk.
