This simple desktop file allows you to "turn off" the monitor (put it into sleep mode) as well as turning off the backlight if you own a laptop.
To install follow these instructions:
If you want it to be an icon in a panel:
- Open the folder where you downloaded the TurnOffMonitor.desktop file
- Drag the file to the panel
If you want it to behave like a regular program that you can call from krunner (Alt+F2):
- Right click the "Application Launcher" widget (the K icon in your panel) and select "Menu Editor"
- Drag the TurnOffMonitor.desktop file to the category you choose.
If when you download the file it opens up in a new window on your browser instead of downloading to your computer, try the "Save page as..." option in your browser and save it somewhere where you can find it. Then follow the instructions above.
