Turn Off Monitor 3

A simple-to-handle and portable piece of software that allows you to turn off your monitor using a custom hotkey in order to save some power, while running low on system resources
Turn Off Monitor is a small Windows application whose sole purpose is to help you turn off the monitor of your PC, notebook, or netbook with minimal effort. It comes in handy especially when you want to save some battery and need to carry out several tasks that do not require the monitor to be turned on.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to turn off your monitor on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

How it works

Turn Off Monitor gives you the possibility to turn off your monitor using a user-defined hotkey. Additionally, you can hide the utility in the system tray with just one click, run the application in the background, and hit the hotkey combination each time you want to turn off the monitor.


The lack of configurable settings can be good news for beginners, as they can learn to master the entire process with minimum effort. During our testing we have noticed that Turn Off Monitor carries out a task quickly. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

Bottom line
