Default How to turn off display permanently?

Hello all, I have new laptop with nvidia card (using nvidia-drivers) and have a slight problem with it. With ati I used to turn off display completely (with acpi) so it stayed off even when I used mouse or keyboard. I am trying to do something similar with nvidia, without success so far.

I can use xset dpms force off and it works, but when I move the mouse or type something the display turns itself back on. I want it to stay off. Is it possible to do it somehow?

Thank you
