G3 beige "power on"

Message #1 - Posted 2004/11/06 - Joseph D. Place

I've added usb and a wireless keyboard and mouse to my beige G3 MT. Is there a way to "power on" without the original ADB keyboard?

TIA

Try the button on the front of the machine.

I guess the power button on the front of the machine is broken, as it does nothing. Thanks!

Hold the power button down for at least 5 seconds. I found that out the hard way, but it's good protection against hitting it accidentally.

I'm using an optical USB mouse with my Beige G3, but I still keep the ADB keyboard so that I can power it up from the keyboard. Call me old fashioned.
