Super Sleep is a small, free and powerful program that will make sure your monitor stays asleep until you decide to wake it up.
It is known that various applications or system settings, even wrong placement of usb ‘jumpers’ in the motherboard!, may force a monitor to exit power-save mode. So many times I left my monitor to sleep, only to find it awake when I returned!
I had even to change system settings or close main applications I work with all the time, just to avoid these interruptions of my monitor’s sleep… I don’t need this trouble. Super Sleep ‘locks’ a monitor in power save mode — to wake up only when you press a certain hotkey, you can customize.
Even if you change track in your media player with your regular media key, your monitor remains asleep! — no need to worry that it may wake up by itself five minutes after you leave the room. Although this is not the purpose of the program, Super Sleep can also be used as a quick privacy protector, and an easy one, since you won’t even have to remember and write passwords…
The default Super Sleep hotkeys are Ctrl+F9 to activate power options, and Ctrl+F10 to wake up the monitor. You can change both of these shortcut keys whenever you want, by right clicking the program’s system tray icon.
To ensure a trouble-free installation, right-click the setup file (supersleep-setup.exe) and select the option "Run as administrator."
Along with secure power-save mode, Super Sleep includes standard options to Shutdown or Restart your PC, even to hibernate. If you don’t need this powerful sleep mode, you can download Sleeper, a freeware that will put your monitor to power save mode with a hot key, but letting you wake it up as usually pressing any keyboard key or moving the mouse. Super Sleep is created for Windows 32, but it seems to work also on Windows 64.
