Sigh.  I just posted this one the other day and forgot about it.  You can
try pressing WindowsKey+P and then select
"Projector Only".
When you want to turn it back on, press WindowsKey+P again and select
"Computer Only".

Yes, most laptops should have an Fn shortcut for this which is certainly
easier.  Of course, if you want to do this on a desktop, you may have to
look into more convoluted methods like DEVCON.

That DEVCON resource looks really cool.

I suggest try path of least resistance first and give the backlight
suggestion a read, and if it does nothing for you, then try the more
involved suggestions.

It should be possible to create a shortcut/hotkey which would disable the
display and still allow you to continue using the computer with the DEVCON
http://www.robvanderwoude.com/devcon.php
utility, but the command would be machine specific since it uses hardware
IDs to disable devices.

I think the person wants to turn off the monitor and continue using
his/her computer. This tool and the previous will turn off the monitor,
but once a key is pressed, the monitor will probably turn back on. These
two tips are more of a sleep mode for the monitor rather than a way of
permanently turning off monitor.

Again, try the solution I suggested and hopefully your laptop user manual
will contain information as to how to permanently turn off backlight of
your computer.

Hi Carlos, do you have any experience with any of those third-party
utility.
I am really concerned about this issue

There may be some third-party utilities which can do this, but short of Fn
key shortcuts on laptops or completely disabling the display in Device
Manager, there is no way that is built-in to Windows.

Hi Kimsan, first of all, I have an HP notebook. I doubt this method would
turnoff display, however it would turn back on, when I start using the
notebook. correct me if I am wrong. I want to do it like the screen



Curtain on I phone. I do appreciate any tips on this matter & I wouldn't
mind testing & experimenting, since I have Toolwiz Time Freeze installed.

What laptop/brand you have?
The fn key with one of the function keys might do this, however, I would
hate for you to fn and press a function key and not knowing what will
occur, as your machine might blow up.
On my Lenovo laptop, it's fn f9 to turn off the display. Not saying yours
is the same, so I recommend consulting the manual for your laptop.
