    hi folks,

    sorry if this is a really bad question, but i don't know anyone who owns an imac and i've never used one for a long period of time :)

    so, on my acd, i can choose to touch a button and turn off the screen when not in use. can i do the same thing on an imac? i don't want to shut the machine off...just the screen so i can tap a button and turn it on when i need to.

    hopefully going to mount an imac in my kitchen :)

    Cheers,
    Keebler

    System Preferences > Energy Saver > Options tab > Allow power button to sleep the computer (check)

    You will now be able to sleep and wake with a quick press of the power button. HTH.
