Powering up monitors using a power bar switch: Bad or good?

    I can't seem to find any definitive answers out there in Google. I would
    really like *not* having to reach over my desk to power up my monitors.

    Is it OK for someone (me) to leave his (mine) Event powered monitors
    switched on at the back and use my power bar to power them both on at the
    same time by flicking the power bar "on" switch, or is this a bad idea?

    At present I am powering them off and on using a cross-desk reaching motion
    and the switches on the back of each monitor.

    If it pops when you turn the strip on then put the monitors on a
    separate power bar and turn them on last and off first.
