    Have an iBook G4. Daughter uses it for school. Cat fell asleep on the key board and when she came back the screen reads in reverse (as I type I see white letters on a black screen vs. a white background with black type. Weird!

    Any one know how to flip it back to normal viewing? I have powered down and restarted in hopes that it would revert back to existing settings but it did not.

    Thanks in advance for recommendations.

    Press the "8", "Control," "Alt/Option" and Apple key at the same time.

    This keyboard shortcut inverts and un-inverts the colors on your screen. Pretty sure that's what your cat did. If it doesn't work I don't know what to tell you :/
