I worked as an admin. at my local hospital. I was know generally acknowledged as the 'computer person' by all of the nurses.
One day my manager (the head nurse) walked into my office, completely flustered and agitated. She said that when turning on the computer at the nurses station, all the 'lights are turning on, and I can hear sounds. But whatever I do, it doesn't turn "On" Please tell me I haven't broken it'!
Concerned that she had, I told her to find the number for the tech. people while I walked over to the nurses station to see if I could remedy the problem.
The monitor was switched off.
