making the monitor power off

I'm using redhat 9 and I have no idea how to make the monitor shut off after a certain amount of time (you know, what setting that is right next to the screen saver in windows). Also, can anyone recommend any other things I can do to save power?

I don't know about about RedHat, it has been a long time since I formatted that drive :-)

But in Mandrake, there is a power option in the control centre, I am sure there was a similar thing in RedHat. It has all the settings for monitor power, hard drive power, stand-by options ...etc

Take a root through your Control Center, It should be there somewhere.
