    Hi. I'm brand new to these boards, as I just got my first Mac. I looked around for an answer to my question, but couldn't find anything. If it's already been answered, could someone point me in the right direction?

    I was wondering if it's possible to change the function of the power button on my monitor. Rather than putting my computer to sleep when I press it, I'd rather it simply turn my monitor off, and leave my computer running.

    Is that possible? Thank you so much.

    short answer

    ....no, the power button on the monitor can be 1) disabled completely, 2) cause the whole computer to sleep or 3) turn off machine.

    Yeah, I just set my energy saver to turn off my monitor after a bit (5 minutes?), and just leave it.
