Describe the bug
master caution button doesn't reset if the eicas message clears by itself. I think the messages that can cause this are things like sink rate and low speed.

To Reproduce
Fly really slowly to trigger the low airspeed. Then accelerate again to remove the eicas message, the master caution button will remain 'on'

Expected behavior
the master caution should reset if the eicas message clears

Should it really clear? The docs aren't entirely clear on whether that'd happen, and specifically states that the light won't clear in relation to the only described reset procedure (master warning)

I imagine it would clear when the message clears or when the pilot presses the button. My only reasoning would be, if the pilots are distracted and a warning appears and then hides, the master caution remains lit. That would cause confusion surely?
