I feel really silly asking this but here goes anyway. I have a PowerMac G4 dual 1.25Ghz MDD FW 800 and an Apple Display Studio display. I use the power switch on the front of the display to turn the system on. No problem there. I want to sell the CPU but keep the Studio Display. I have a Sony display that doesn't have the integrated power switch that i would like to sell with the CPU. But when I disconnect the Apple Studio display I can't turn the CPU on. When I press the power switch on the CPU, nothing happens.

I can power on using the Studio Display and have even swapped out the monitors while the machine was running and the video works fine on the Sony display. But when I shut down i can't restart without reconnecting the Studio Display and using its power switch.

Surely I'm missing something really stupid... Any suggestions?
