Powers off your screen (or screens) when you lock your computer.
Version: 2.0.0SimpleMonitorOff is a Windows application which powers off your screen (or screens) when you lock your computer.
Operating System: Windows
When you lock your computer (eg. with Win+L) then ordinarily your screen(s) will not immediately go to sleep.
SimpleMonitorOff detects that you have locked your computer, and requests that the screen(s) be powered down. Shortly afterwards your screen(s) will do so (ie. go into standby mode).
When you move your mouse or hit a key, they will wake again to let you unlock the computer.
If you (or your cat) did that by accident, then after a little while your screen(s) will power down again.
Note: Unlike many similar applications, SimpleMonitorOff does not require any additional hotkeys, mouse clicks, or shortcuts - it responds to events sent by Windows itself, so will respond to you locking your computer however you choose to do it, rather than expecting a specific hotkey combination or shortcut.
Version 2.0.0: Integration with SimpleActivityLogger. Fixed several defects to do with Fast User Switching. Guards against a startup race condition where the user logs on and immediately locks the console.
Version 1.0.3: Fixed a minor defect where, when using a fingerprint reader, sometimes the screen(s) will not wake up upon unlock.
Version 1.0.2: Fixed a minor defect where, under rare circumstances, the monitor(s) might momentarily power off again after unlocking.
Version 1.0.0: Initial release
