    First, the good news - I figured out from extensive searching how to make my keypad (10-key number pad) work under OS X! Universal Access had taken it over for mouse keys...a quick trip to the control panel fixed it.

    Now, the question - on a new G4, do I REALLY need to use the button on the computer itself to start up? I've gotten used to using the keyboard, and the computer is not in a convenient location.

    Try CTRL-Eject

    In the Apple knowledge base, they talk about how to use the Eject button as a PowerKey.

    That's fine for shutting down, but doesn't appear to start up.


    Those who laugh at you for you having a Mac, are the people who constantly call you to fix their PC

    How true!!!!!!!
