Is there a way to make the screen go black for a second with autoit and then come back on?

If there is, please enlighten me as to how ;)

Unplug the monitor's power cord and then plug it back in ;))) This should do it

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

$width = Width of your screen

GuiCreate("black screen", $width, $height, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP)

GuiSetState()

GuiSetBkColor(000000)

Sleep(1000)

What if you want to include it in a program, so to come up, then go away, how would you do that?

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

Func GoBlack()

$width = Width of your screen

$height = Height of your screen

GuiCreate("black screen", $width, $height, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP)

GuiSetState()

GuiSetBkColor(000000)

Sleep(1000)

EndFunc

And just call the function when you want

I'm getting confused here, how do you call a function?

-Bob

Edit: Well, I know how to call a function with a hot key, but I just want it to happen during the program.

Edit 2: Actually, I have an idea.

Edit 3: How Do I close it so I can call it again if I want?

There is something called helpfile but

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

MsgBox(0, "Func", "Now I'm gonna call a function")

GoBlack()

MsgBox(0, "End", "I called a function")

Func GoBlack()
$width = Width of your screen
$height = Height of your screen
GuiCreate("black screen", $width, $height, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP)
GuiSetState()
GuiSetBkColor(000000)
Sleep(1000)
EndFunc

that's wierd...it works every time in office poltergeist...although of course they use variables, but that should make no difference...

here is the func directly from office poltergeist:

func screenFlicker()
  Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
  $WM_SYSCommand = 274
  $SC_MonitorPower = 61808
  $Power_On = -1
  $Power_Off = 2
  $X = 1
  $HWND = WinGetHandle("classname=Progman")
  DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $HWND, "int", $WM_SYSCommand, "int", $SC_MonitorPower, "int", $Power_Off)
  DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", $HWND, "int", $WM_SYSCommand, "int", $SC_MonitorPower, "int", $Power_On)
endFunc

or you could use

ON =

DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", WinGetHandle("classname=Progman"), "int", 274, "int", 61808, "int", 2)

OFF =

DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SendMessage", "hwnd", WinGetHandle("classname=Progman"), "int", 274, "int", 61808, "int", -1)
