Turn Off LCD : An Application To Turn Off Laptop Monitor Display When It Is Idle

Keeping a laptop's monitor on all the time can waste energy and decrease the lifespan of the display. Unlike desktop monitors, most laptop screens don't have a button that will turn them off separately from the computer itself. This can be problematic if you have a long download or virus scan that you want to run while not at your computer. Luckily, it is still possible to turn off your laptop's monitor without shutting down the laptop itself.

Turn Off LCD is an application in C# using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. It’s basically a simple console based application that makes use of a dll (User32.dll) file from Windows using System.Runtime.InteropServices namespace and then calls the required function.

Turn Off LCD tool turns off the monitor when run and resumes it when any key is pressed or the mouse is moved. The tool is free and small in size. Turn Off LCD doesn’t even require any installation and can be run in all versions of the Windows.
