Turn Off Monitor v3

Changes:

  • Modifier key (shift/ctrl/alt/win) no longer necessary for the hotkey
  • You must click "Save" to make the hotkey stick, it's not automatic like before
  • 'About' link now takes you to the category for this utility, not a specific page, like I originally intended

Known issues:

  • Config files saved a bit differently now, and it's incompatible with the old way, so you might get an error when you first run. Solution: Just save a hotkey, which will overwrite the old config file with the new one.
  • If you press a modifier then the key you want for the hotkey, sometimes it doesn't work. Solution: Press and release the modifier key you want, then press the other key separately. Then it works.

Like before, hit a key or jiggle the mouse to turn the monitor back on (you can adjust that in the system power settings), and requires .Net 2.0.

Turn Off Monitor v2

Changes:

  • Customizable hotkey (click to capture hotkey, escape to stop)
  • Tooltip on tray icon now shows what the hotkey is
  • Custom hotkey is saved in a per-user config file (%appdata%\turnoffmonitor\turnoffmonitor\1.0.0.0\config.txt)
  • Clicking the tray icon no longer turns off the monitor, it just brings up the window
  • Interface changes- more compact, less distracting. Clicking the link takes you to the latest post for this program.
  • Fixed a really annoying bug where the system would immediately turn the monitor back on

Like before, hit a key or jiggle the mouse to turn the monitor back on (you can adjust that in the system power settings), and requires .Net 2.0.
