Turn off laptop monitor manually

Most of the laptops do not have an option to turn off the LCD display screen manually.Mostly the screen automatically switches off after a certain time interval.
Its better to conserve power by switching off manually.
Here is a simple application for that.

Monitor OFF (zipped)

The application makes use of the c++ commands to access the display device and puts it into sleep mode,ie,turns off the display.Display can be brought back by simply pressing any key or by using the touchpad/mouse.
