Put Your Monitor To Sleep With Blacktop

I am a fond lover of the simple software utilities that really serve a purpose. Today I came across an application called Blacktop that, with a quick keystroke (Ctrl+Alt+B), will put your monitor into power save mode. In other words using the keystroke provided you can manually (and quickly) put your monitor to sleep (monitor will go blank). This is especially useful in the event you step away from your computer for an extended period of time.

When you install Blacktop, you will see a small icon in the system tray that is the indication that Blacktop is running.  You can set Blacktop to run at system startup by right clicking on this icon and selecting, “Run At Startup”.


Blacktop is available as a 32bit or 64bit application.
