Monitor Specifications  
Power Management Modes  
If you have VESA's DPM™ compliance display card or software installed in your PC, the monitor can automatically reduce its power consumption when not in use. This is  
referred to as 'Power Save Mode'*. If input from keyboard, mouse, or other input devices is detected by the computer, the monitor automatically resumes functioning. The  
following table shows the power consumption and signaling of this automatic power saving feature:

NOTE: USB 2.0 capability requires 2.0-capable computer.  
NOTE: The USB interface of the monitor works ONLY when monitor is powered ON (or in Power Save Mode). Switching your monitor OFF and then ON would re-  
enumerate its USB interface; attached peripherals may take a few seconds to resume normal functionality.  
Plug and Play Capability  
You can install the monitor in any Plug and Play-compatible system. The monitor automatically provides the computer system with its Extended Display Identification Data  
(EDID) using Display Data Channel (DDC) protocols so the system can configure itself and optimize the monitor settings. Most monitor installations are automatic; you can  
select different settings, if desired.

Cleaning Your Monitor  
CAUTION: Read and follow the safety instructions before cleaning the monitor.  
CAUTION: Before cleaning the monitor, unplug the monitor power cable from the electrical outlet.  
To clean your antistatic screen, slightly dampen a soft, clean cloth with water. If possible, use a special screen-cleaning tissue or solution suitable for  
the antistatic coating. Do not use benzene, thinner, ammonia, abrasive cleaners, or compressed air.  
Use a slightly-dampened, warm cloth to clean the plastics. Avoid using detergent of any kind as some detergents leave a milky film on the plastics.  
If you notice a white powder when you unpack your monitor, wipe it off with a cloth. This white powder occurs during the shipping of the monitor.  
Handle your monitor with care as darker-colored plastics may scratch and show white scuff marks more than lighter-colored monitor.  
To help maintain the best image quality on your monitor, use a dynamically changing screen saver and power off your monitor when not in use.
