Flightdeck state

Sitting in the Cockpit of a real parked up BA 747-400 tonight at HEATHROW i noticed that the Captains ND & PFD were blank . The overhead BAT switch was OFF, STANDBY power switch was OFF but the captains PFD & ND were not blank unlike the PMDG flightdeck. I realise that this was a Rolls Royce engined 747 opposed to the PMDG GE varient and wonder if this could explain these differences. Just wondered if anyone knows if there Are there different configerations of what is on and what is not in the cockpit according to airline or engine types etc....thanksKav

Possibly something to do with the connection of ground power? I'm guessing though sorry. :(
