One oddity about the first monitor I got - it had two power switches, much like most modern computers. One soft power switch on the front of the system, one hard in the back next to the plug. There was a piece of tape over the power switch in that standard "remove this before using the monitor" manner, but oddly, the switch was on. Go figure, right? I just assumed it was a mistake - someone had accidentally flipped it - and ignored it.
This one has the switch on also. What gives? Why put a piece of tape on a switch in the "on" position?
Maybe it's just so I notice it and am aware there's a switch there.
Actually, that's not a bad explanation.
