I never used that display, thus I have no personal experience.

Maybe the area pointed out in my first reply is touch sensitive, I haven't read the complete manual.




Maybe change your thread title to "How to turn on 17" Apple Cinema Display (Flat Panel)?", as "m7649" is non-descript.
To edit your thread title, just click on the button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

Sorry to complicate matters, but I think that monitor was called an Apple Studio Display, not Cinema. Spec sheet here:

Can't find the manual as yet.

Yep, thanks. The Cinema and Studio line share a similarity, but the 17" was Studio, and the 22" was Cinema, the first one.

It is really strange though, that now manual can be found.

Just read my own link....

"The unique, touch-sensitive power button on the front of the display controls the entire system—power on, sleep, and wake."

Ironically I read the same information, but on another site, but as there were no identifying images, only a closeup, I though they were talking about the CRT version, thus I omitted it from memory.

Thanks again for helping.
