This handy pair of executables adds muscle to the monitor's power off function. WinFlog's small multitabbed interface offers four easily invoked functions. WinFlogTurnOff's executable needs no interface as the application simply and immediately turns off the monitor.
Operating WinFlog is very easy, especially for XP users. The program's primary tab lists two options to add a Turn Off Monitor option to the My Computer Icon right-click menu and to the desktop right-click menu. The functions are just as easily removed from the menus using single-click buttons on the same tab. The program's second tab uses a similar set of buttons to add Turn Off Aero and Turn on Aero options to the My Computer icon's right-click menu. Only Vista users will benefit from this option.
Both freeware executables offer useful monitor control functions for any level user.
Turns-OFF your monitor instantly by Adding "Monitor OFF" in the Computer Icon and Desktop Context Menu (Right-Click Menu). While "Turn OFF Aero" will give a minimal boost in performance and a good battery life. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
