[Closed] Turn Monitors Off

Recommended Posts

IanN1990

When ever i go to bed, i lock my pc "as it normally converting videos or playing music" but i want to try and improve my greenfootprint :)

I dont need all 3 screens on, so was wondering if any autoit code could be used to turn off the left and right screen??

I have found lots of examples of scripts that turn off all monitors "including one within the helpfine" but i would like the main one would remain on.

Anyone have any ideas? ;)

I dont think this would be possible as powering them on and off is a hardware level command. However, you could create a black WS_POPUP styled GUI for each screen which could for example, move the mouse every 5 or so minutes to prevent it from going to sleep.

Wouldn't it be easier to press the power buttons on the monitors :)

hmm well the monitor bases are covered to prevent dust ^^ besides i have a "logg-off" screen that sets my status to away and does lots of other stuff

I was hoping to add a "turn power off" to it as well :)

It was worth a try anyway! :) The only code I have turns off all the monitors.
