Okay, I did something stupid. I attached an old monitor (which turned out to be non-functional) to my new G5. Result: I now have a G5 which is on, but without a screen to see how to turn it off. What is safest thing to do? With other Macs pressing the power button brings up a dialog box on which the default is "shut down", so pressing the return key shuts down your mac. Unfortunately, when I do this "press the power key and then return, the G5 does something (I can't see what but the fans come on briefly), but it does not turn off. So with the G4s at least, holding the power key down for a few seconds shuts down the computer. This appeared to do little or nothing on the G5. Is there something I can do to turn it off short of pulling out the power plug?
