    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 [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    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....:eek:

    "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.
