    You are correct however I have read posts stating that the 'egg' tends to burn out or die. If you don't want to buy anything then I would cut between the plug (to the screen) and the egg and wire as you described above.

    Since I did not want to cut the original powersupply, I went to RadioShack and bought the following:
    Adaptaplug N - $4.99
    6 Ft. Adaptaplug Extension Cable - $5.49 This cable has two female connectors for the adaptaplugs. I cut it in half and used on side for the screen and the other for my SB Extigy.

    For best results get a Molex plug so you can simply plug it up to your power supply. You can also find them at RadioShack but I'm not having any luck finding them on the website. Don't forget to look up the Lilliput Auto Turn-on mod for the Lilliput.

    I checked that out, but it is wayy too hard for me. I'd rather turn my monitor on manually than fry it with some silly mod.

    I'm actually going to have a friend supervise me/assist me/do it for me.... (pick one). If you can get someone to do the soldering for you, I would think that would be a good improvment to your system. You computer starts up and the screen will also turn on.
