In "Siege of Castellax" there is a Iron Warrior who is captured by the Orks, where they strip his armor and holds him captive. He escapes and gets his armor back, but it is completly torn apart by the orks, so none of the machinery actually works.

He does make it back, but it is described as cumbersome and unresponsive. It does give him the required protection though, and he certainly is able to use it. He can run from orks, and aim to a certain degree - So i think it more like the old plate mail in medieval time, where you sacrifice movability for protection, when it is not powered up.
