Newbie : Auto-on Monitor

When I turn on my wall switch, my PC comes on automatcially, but I have to push the ON button on my LCD monitor. I would like the monitor to switch on automatically also.

Could someone please advise how I can do this? This is important since the ON switch on the LCD is not responding well and I would rather not touch it anymore. FYI, my old Samsung CRT had this feature.

  1. Best answer
    if you have a lack-of-power situation all the lcds that i've had to deal with require a power button press to turn back on.

    you might be able to get around this by leaving the monitor plugged into an "always-on" source and setting the monitor to go to "sleep-mode" once it senses X minutes of inactivity (no signal) if your monitor supports this.

    if your monitor doesnt support such a feature it might be best to get the power switch fixed. being that its a simple momentary switch it wouldn't be all that hard to replace , though it might look ugly. if it is under warranty then send it in for repair instead.
