Utility that can turn monitor off
 
Does anybody know of a utility that can blank the screen or suspend it by running a console command?

You can also add Option "DPMS" to your XF86Config if you are in a GUI. Other is good if in a console. There are a lot of options there for both. man setterm.

Later
