No problem about the switch Mark.
I managed to get it all up and running. I have the console loading to the screen which works a treat. I am halfway through getting X to load to the PiScreen, I had to leave for work -.-
Just to confirm it is the square whole nearest to the "On" text on the PCB and the middle whole that need to be patched to complete the circuit. I just used a small piece of wire and soldered it across the wholes. They are so close together you could probably just use solder to connect the wholes if you wanted to.

I purchased the PiScreen Kit through Tindie, unfortunately I could not find a switch in the packaging that was shipped. I will follow up with Tindie about the switch as this is probably not your issue.
My question is: it appears to be a simple 3 pin switch, can I just solder a piece of wire between the On & middle pin on the PCB to get the PiScreen to work? When I get a chance I'll pop to the local electronics store and get a replacement 3 pin switch.
In the meantime, are there any side effects to the PiScreen always being on other than power consumption?

No Problem, Thanks for the alternative! I'm just starting out with the BerryIMU and fancy a chance at the PiScreen too ^_^.
