Why the hell do engineers have to hide the stinking power button??

I’m trying to set up an HP Pavillion all in one.  It took me a good five minutes to locate the power button on the bottom of the display.. I can only imagine the designers


  • Make the documentation type and drawing too tiny to read – CHECK
  • Don’t put the power button on the front where you can see it – CHECK
  • Put it on the bottom where you can’t see it – CHECK
  • Make it flush so there is no tactile feedback as to where to find the button – CHECK
  • Make it the exact same color as the casing – CHECK
  • Make the power button icon white on an aluminum background and 10 points – CHECK.
WTF – what were those ‘engineers’ thinking. ???
