I've not really been bothered about people seeing what I do (even when I'm writing my thesis, games news or other things on trains), but I've often wished for a way of turning off the laptop display in hopes of preserving battery power.

The laptop screen is too small for me to want to try and use for anything visual like playing graphical games or watching dvds, and certainly for all the standard windows things it's not necessary, yet it's taking up my battery life which is irritating.

Beware the Grue!

Hi Thomas,
I once set my background and character color to the same setting thus when typing a sighted person could not see the text, but the speech synthesizer recognized it and spoke it.

Hi Philip,

I'm interested in how to disable the display myself. My understanding
was you could put it to sleep, but not outright disable it via the
Windows API. If it is possible I'd be interested in this project
myself.

Hi Yohandy,

This can be done through the Windows API. I am always available for small
projects like this for hire, so please write me off list if you are
interested.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall
