    Had (used) iBook G4 several months now & thoroughly enjoy it, even tho' I live in the sticks where there's no hi-speed/wireless available; I connect to internet & power, which is fine.
    This weekend I went to turn off my iBook & it wouldn't turn off. It's now permanently on, with opening info barely visible (like I need to click on F2 to brighten up, except nothing happens).
    Currently using my "back up" computer, my iMac Grape, which is pretty much an antique by now.
    If anybody has any suggestions/ideas, I'd love to hear them, as the iBook is MUCH better than this iMac; unfortunately, it's currently not working!
    Thanks for any tips/suggestions.

    Pull the battery out. That should turn it off!?
