Okay, when I have time. On the "on/off" button issue, I have had two different desktops since 2001, so I'm no novice, and their buttons were easy to find and I never had a problem with them, which...

I have since found it, but it's one where you have to use your finger nail to press it. I was using my finger before now and that's why it didn't work and why I asked. And Gregrocker try to just be...

Okay thanks, and I will try it when I have a bit of time. As a matter of interest though, there doesn't seem to be a Power Button here. Unlike my earlier PC, this is a different setup. Tried to...
