Re: laptop monitors

My laptop has a feature where you can turn off the monitor with the function 
key in combination with f3.  It is a toggle so you can turn it back on again.

By default, when you re-boot, the monitor is automatically turned back on.

I would say though, turning off the monitor on a laptop is not a good idea,
if you have a problem and need sighted help at some point, you're in big
trouble if the monitor is shut off and you can't turn it back on, or can't
remember how, better to just dim it out to where it's just not visible from
far away and leave it on so that way you at least have it,  I had a problem
with a laptop and was very glad I had the monitor working, in fact, if I
didn't, the computer might have been a complete loss.
