Put your monitor to power save mode, with Sleeper

Rating: 5
  Excellence Award  

If you are a power-save mode fan, you will appreciate a small utility that will let you send your monitor to sleep easily.

Sleeper lets you define whatever hot-key you prefer to run it and activate the power-save mode of your monitor.

Exiting power save mode is as simple as you already know: just press whatever key of your Keyboard, or move your mouse.

Check this post if your PC wakes up by itself a few minutes after you put it to sleep — or download Super Sleep instead of Sleeper, an equally small and free, but more powerful program, that makes sure your monitor remains in power save mode until you decide to wake it up. Sleeper is created for Windows 32, but it seems to work also on Windows 64.

    Thanks – Very useful utility. Why didn’t didn’t BIlly think of this. It’s not that far out of the box.

    Wonder if it would be possible to direct this to say monitor one so that one monitor can be put to sleep while using another as for an HT computer.

  2. I think this is currently not possible, the way a PC allows dual monitor setup.

    curious if there is any way possible to get this to work over home network? i’d love to be able to install this on a few machines, and when we watch movie in theater room, all other monitors would shut off once i clicked on sleeper or sleepers.
    Thanks for any advice!

  5. Perhaps with a batch file that would run Sleeper on a number of machines?

    I have a problem with Sleeper (Windows 7U, Dual Monitor) as soon as I run it the monitors shut off and then immediately come back on. Help!
