Unhappy My CnMBook Manual page 5 shows how to turn off on desk top, but how do I turn on?


I have just treated myself to this neat looking CnMBook, which once I've got into it, will I'm sure, be very good; I know it works OK because my son was playing a game on it earlier today, but as he's no longer here I can't ask him what to do! Will some kind person please, please tell me which button on the keypad I need to press to actually open it to start using it!
Many thanks from this 'not-very-computer-literate-OAP.
Gwen.

Are you seriously asking how you open a laptop?

There aren't that many buttons and catches....the power button is marked with a power symbol...look for it. Press it and it will turn on. If you can't figure out how to open it...can't help you there, and it's probably best you wait.

Thumbs up Easy when you know how!

I didn't realize that when my son had finished using the mini laptop he had left it on 'snooze', maybe this was why when I tried to turn it on nothing happened; anyway, thinking that possibly the battery had gone 'flat' I plugged it in to the mains for a while and tried again, and this time when I clicked on the 'io' button it opened up/came on with no trouble: isn't it lovely and clear, I thought it may not be as it's so small: anyway, many thanks for your replies.
