hmmmm....

The clutch-system itself is spring loaded. When the clutch pedal is pressed, you are compressing a (set of) spring (s) inside the pressure plate. The resting position is the pressure plate is squeezing the clutch between itself and the flywheel. The only issue I could imagine in the master and/or slave cylinder is if the piston in either is somehow getting stuck and won't allow the pressure-plate to go back to its "resting state" (which would be "clutch engaged")

Generally speaking, if there is something wrong with your clutch slave or master cylinder you would have trouble DIS-engaging the clutch.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong on this...
