A new type of dynamical behavior of a multistable system is reported. We found that a simple non-equilibrium system can reduce its effective temperature autonomously at a global minimum if the residual frustration at the global minimum is sufficiently small. This highlights an unexpected feature of non-equilibrium multistable systems.
