They don't make it easy do they?
My recent monitor is a Samsung, and the controls are stupid. They all work via menus from a combination micro joystick and button - but it's on the back of the monitor where you can't see it, and to turn the monitor off, you have to click it, then pull it down, then click it again. Which is OK, but ... that doesn't work once the video signal is no longer present, because then it goes into "hunt" mode between analog and digit inputs, and the joystick now just switches between them.

So to turn the computer off, you have to open the start menu, select "Power", position the mouse over the "shut down" option, then turn off the monitor and click the mouse (hoping it didn't move in the meantime, which is fine for me with a trackball, but a PITA with a "regular mouse").

I recently found that you can hold the joystick in for five or six seconds and it'll turn off, but that only works when there isn't a video signal.

Stupid UI design, done to make the front look "clean" and probably costing more than dedicated buttons would have ...

Samsung used to be very, very good at this stuff - usability was the key thing. But recently they let the marketing department and lazy coders do the UI design, I think.
