This is my situation: I want to use an iMac as a gateway and firewall but I to completely turn off the monitor.
I've searched around and asked on IRC but I cannot find an answer to my question. Is there a way to cut power to an iMac monitor.
The things I've tried so far: unplugging the montior capled (I thought about it later and realized that power is not supplied by montior cabls (most of the time) using programs like pbbuttons and pmud (yes, i know it's an iMac and those are for laptops, it was a stretch..), I have also messed around the kernel as well.
So, I've taken the computer completely apart, but I cannot make out how I might connect the power input directley to the motherboad et al.
