The Sad Mac

Well, it's not really sad. It is blind. Whenever I am away from the house for more than a few days, I shut down and unplug my computers. I have an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), but a UPS isn't substitute for actual power. It's just meant to give you time to shut the computer down properly and to avoid losing unsaved data. So when I'm not home, I shut things down. Only this time when I brought the system back up, the monitor didn't fire up. The computer is clearly running, but the monitor is dead. I have shut it down and re-started it several times. I have unplugged the monitor cable several times. I have even tried percussive maintenance techniques (aka whacking the monitor) to no avail. I'll miss that big, shiny LCD monitor.... *sigh*
