Putting monitor to sleep
I was goofing around and changed the setting in lilo for my screen (vga=787) and found I rather liked the tighter look and larger viewing area it afforded me. However, in the past I have used the DPMS functions of the monitor to put it to sleep after fifteen minutes or so, and it is apparent that this won't work now. This has led me to wonder if there is an obvious way to work around this and have it sleep as it did in the normal setting? I hate to shut down and reboot, but I have this thing about seeing that glowing grey screen that it has after awhile. If there is no way to continue doing it as I did in the past, could I just turn the monitor off and back on later or will this hurt something? Thanks for any help.
