    Newbie : Auto-on Monitor


      I am not sure which specific component deals with this feature, hence posting here.


      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.

          This would be a function of the monitor.

          Your wall switch shuts off teh AC. When restored, the monitor does not remember its last state so stays off.

          The computer does or has a BIOS setting to enable a last state reset so it can be set to turn on.


          Only thing i can think of is to connect the monitor to a different AC outlet so that it always stays on.

          It will go in to a low power mode if no video from the computer is present.

          When you flip the switch, just the computer will turn on.

            Thanks. I'll check BENQ if there is some way for it to "remember" its last state. (My old Samsung CRT of 2002 could remember it)
