how to manually switch to screensaver

i was wondering if there is a key combination to turn on your screensaver. when i play games and such my screensaver will turn on until i go to the menu and change it to off and then i go back and turn it on again when im done. frustating waste of time.
isnt there some special key combo to turn your monitor off and then back on. preferably without having to open a terminal.

If you're using KDE, Kmenu-->Lock Session. I think there's something similar in Gnome, too, but I can't remember right now.
