Where is the "ON" button on the iMac 27?

Well if that's the only power button then Apple are selling a computer that is no good for disabled people who cannot leave their fingers, there's no way I could turn the computer on by myself.

seriously, apple computers have some built in functions for disabilities. go into system preferences and click on universal access. there's a spoken commands function (voiceover, i think it's called). and some other things too. and you can set up any impairment periferals there too. of course i guess saying "on" doesn't help if it's off.

I've done a bit of digging around and indeed the Power button is on the back of the monitor which I'm afraid is useless for a lot of disabled people. Having said this, apparently most people just leave the computer to sleep when they are not using it. Somebody on the Apple forum suggested that it cost about £3.50 a year to leave the computer on 24/7 which is probably cheaper than booting it up every time.

It's a difficult one really. I don't want to be in the position where for some reason my computer switches off, maybe a power cut and then I can't turn the darn thing on again. Why on earth didn't they put the power button on the front? It's just complete madness to put it on the back.
