how to turn on and off the monitor on a time schedule? i use hp 6100 as a display and i would like

HP TouchSmart 610 , Windows 7 64 bit is used for public display of information.

I would like to find a way to schedule the monitor operation ON and OFF. I want to turn the monitor ONLY during the night.

What would you suggest?

Hi

Download Nircmd from here:

http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html

Nircmd is a tiny and free command line tool to do just about anything

The zip file will contain 2 .exe files, it's easier to install the one that goes into your windows directory.

Then make 2 simple batch files using the following scripts:

 

to turn off dislay:

@echo off.

nircmd.exe monitor off

 

and to turn on:

@echo off.

nircmd.exe monitor off

 

Then use windows scheduler to automate the 2 batch files and make sure your power options in windows are set to never turn off your display or  computer.

 

Hope it helps!
