LXer: One click monitor power-down for Linux

Published at LXer:

If you're running a Linux-powered laptop and you want to switch off the screen, without waiting for the laptop to go into sleep mode, then this is a great tip from Tombuntu. Switch the monitor off instantaneously with the command: sleep 1 && xset dpms force off. Making this into a desktop shortcut is also easy.
