This project looks awesome but there isn't enough documentation of you actually making it to be a full Instructable. There are two things which you could do. 1) If you happen to have images of you making your project you can create some more steps, add those additional photos into your Instructable and then republish your Instructable. 2) If you don't have any more pictures of you working on your project, that's ok too. That just means that your project is better suited to be submitted as a slideshow. Your images are already in your library, and you can use the same text that you have already written for your Instructable so it should only take a few minutes to create your slideshow and show the world what you made! Thanks for your submission and let me know if you have any questions along the way.

This is a bit weird... The readers managed to turn their computer on to read this instructable. They are quite capable of turning it back off

Next minute, they will be showing you how to turn the monitor on and off. Tricky business

SERIOUSLY, seriously... the only way this would have been of any use is if you added some force shutdown, restart, etc. codings and there are already plenty of ibles for that.

WTF is the point, i mean if you can turn it on you should have the sense to be able to turn it off....RTFM
