There is a room with a door with three lights in it you cant see in the room how do you find out what lightswitch goes with what light in the room but you can not open the door?

First you turn on one of the switches and don't enter the room for sometime, till the light inside is heated up. Then switch that light off, and then turn the second one on and enter the room. The one heated up (feel by hand) is the first switch that was turned on, the one glowing is the second switch turned on and the remainder not hot nor light up is the third switch * WHY DOES IT MATTER IF YOU CANT OPEN THE DOOR??

Does flicking the light on and off fast waste power?

Yes, flicking the light on and off fast does waste power. Turn the light on only when you need the light to see something in that room. Turn the light off when you leave the room to conserve power.
