Well, when I power my Imac on the apple-sound comes, and the monitor is black and in a few seconds the Imac shut off. But wehn I´m plug of the monitor-cable (15pin) in the Imac, the Imac boats and works without the Monitor (naturally :lol:). And I made a vga-connector for the apple monitor-output. The Imac runns perfect with a externelly monitor.
I say recase the imac, so you can use an external monitor, I just finished mine up and I'll be posting YAIAM (yet another imac atx mod):evil: soon, it is actually very easy, you just need to have a new house for the logic board and some soldering skeelz. Also there are numerous tutorials on how to do it.

On a rev. A you can take the 15-pin DBA to a VGA adaptor and call it good...but that's weak. Convert it to ATX and pop it into a proper case, or shell out some cash and get the Analog board since the flyback is out and mod the case into oblivion.
The choice is yours
