Has anybody seen an app that i can schedule the Monitor Power to shut off after an hour (or whatever amount of time) between 9-5 and if the hours are the opposite shut off in 5 minutes?

so is this available as a download somewhere??  I didn't see it listed on skrommel's site neither.

I am also looking for something that I can use to turn off the monitors at a certain time (school setting).

you have to copy the code and save it as an .ahk file then use Autohotkey to run it as a script. Wink

I copied Lanux's code, saved as .ahk and then d/l autohotkey and converted it to exe.  I then double clicked the exe and it puts an icon down in the tray by the clock.

But how do I set the options or where do I go to check them?

it's Skrommel's code, not mine. smiley i haven't tested it yet but a glance at the code shows that the program will turn the monitor off after a certain amount of idle time, based on the current time. i.e.
1. Between 9.01am-5pm, monitor will be turned off after 5mins of inactivity.
2. Between 5.01pm-9am, monitor will be turned off after 30mins of inactivity.

you can request for more flexibility, hopefully Skrommel will find the time. smiley

so you need to change the code before making an exe of it - or
you can also simply save code as *.ahk file in the scripts folder in AHK programme folder, then just start file to run it - advantage being you can edit it any time smiley

  If (A_TimeIdlePhysical>5*60000 And now<090000 Or now>=170000 And off=0)
    Gosub,OFF
  Else
  If (A_TimeIdlePhysical>30*60000 And now>=090000 And now<170000 And off=0)
    Gosub,OFF
so, you change the 5 or 30 or the times shown (I reckon anyways)

Help please.

Your MonitorOff program is the answer to my prayers ever since my energy saving timing went south. However, your prog curls up its toes when the time is outside the start and end times the prog seems to enter a endless loop. When I move the mouse the monitor comes up for about 1 second or two before going back to sleep. Inside the start end times the prog works great. The idleout time is presently set at 10, but it appears that it has no effect on the problem.

Your thoughts on this Skrommel?
