    Edit: Bizarre. My text went AWOL.

    *ahem*

    I have a PB 15in. 1.5gHz. I have a 23inch Cinema Display with a DVI connector.

    Do I have to shut my computer down to plug in the DVI cable? Can I do it when the PB is asleep? Can I do it when the PB is on?

    Thanks.

    Thanks. I remember reading that, but just couldn't wrap my brain around it.
    (I blame being awake for about 32 consecutive hours.)

    I just want to clarify - since that doesn't specifically say to turn the computer off, I can plug in the DVI with my powerbook on.

    Thanks again.

    Just to be safe:

    I always put my powerbook to sleep before connecting or disconnecting my cinema display. It only takes 30 seconds.
