Can't Remotely Turn Off Monitor, Work Around Time


Recommended Posts

So I have a monitor in my dorm room across from my bed so sometimes I want to watch hulu then go to sleep but I can't because my monitor will stay on afterwards. Any ideas.

My ideas:

Make an android app that sends a message to my computer to start screensaver.

Try this utility


The command is

nircmd.exe monitor off

This will only allow you to turn off the monitor locally not remotely.

However you could set up a persistent netcat reverse shell, where you could remotely turn on and off the monitor.

wireless mouse and a screen saver set on 10minutes?

Or buy a computer screen that has remote control capabilities.

I already have the monitor and that utility looks nice but I use ubuntu

Sorry I thought you used Windows, may be other users in these forums would have a solution for you.

Good luck
