"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are a couple of ways to do this, one option is to use NirCmd. http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html

Create a shortcut to the exe with the following:
<path to executable>\nircmd.exe monitor off

Then open the properties for the shortcut and you can assign a shortcut key.

Monitor Off Utility http://www.dekisoft.com/mou.php is another possibility though I prefer using NirSoft's tools.
