Turn Off Monitor – with just a single click !

In GNU/Linux on March 1, 2010 at 10:32 pm

When we are significantly away from our monitor and our hand can’t reach the monitor’s turnoff switch, but we are concerned about not wasting the electricity or energy! Then this always helps !

Yes, It just happened to me I searched in Google to get a simple program, with just a click to turn-off the monitor.I got it here.

Just copy the text below into the editor and save it with .desktop extention and run it!

[Desktop Entry]
Name=TurnOff Monitor
Exec=xset dpms force off
Name[en_IN]=TurnOff Monitor

That it! We are done.
