Automatic monitor shutoff

I read the following in The Philadelphia Inquirer on conserving computer resources:

"Get rid of the spiffy wallpaper.

Go to Control Panel, click on Display, then the Background tab. Under Wallpaper, choose none.

As long as you are in Display, go to the Screen Saver tab. Check the box next to Shut off Monitor and set the amount of time the computer should be idle before the shut-off kicks in."

When I tried to follow this advice, there was no "shut-off monitor" option. Is there any other way I can get my monitor to turn off automatically after a certain period of inactivity?

Are you using Win 95? Under display, go to the second tab labled Screen Saver. The "shut off monitor" is the last option in the "energy saving features of monitor" box at the bottom of the window. If the box is not there, your monitor does not have the necessary energy saving features. It does not really shut it completely off, It just shuts down almost all the energy using parts.
