    Under power options in Control Panel, set "Turn off monitor after xx mins". If you can't find it in your control panel, upgrade your OS, if your monitor can't switch off, change your monitor.

    Really don't understand why not use the power off button on the monitor... switches off the monitor instantly without waiting for the screensaver/power saver option to kick in.....
