a program to turn off the video to LCD?

I need a program which could turn off the video to LCD monitor and turn it back on to LCD when needed.
if a shell script also can do the work that would be great.
basically i need to turn off the video between 9PM and 5 AM, anyone managed to find sth like this before?
thanks a lot

I don't understand what you are trying to do. Why not just turn off the screen when it's not in use?

Maybe he can't. Maybe it has to be done automaticly.

Describe your setup.
