Oh, lovely.  Under-documentation.

Any idea where to get such missing documentation, in general?

I have two monitors in routine use at home, an Acer AL1706 A and an
Asus VH236H.  The former, I find holding down the AUTO button while
doing a (soft) power-on makes the power LED come on amber rather than
green, and the OSD (a) appears in an unusual location and (b) has extra
menu options (none as nice as what you describe, though).  The Asus
doesn't power on if I have any single one of the other buttons pressed
when I press the (soft) power button; I haven't tried any of the 26
possible multi-button combinations, nor have I tried hard power-cycles.
