Default Re: How to turn off display permanently?

I don't have any external monitor, I am sorry if I explained it badly.

I have only internal monitor and I want to control it - I want to be able to shut it off and on. Like with "xset dpms off/on" but independently so that it doesn't come back on automaticly (with mouse move, keyboard press etc)

Now when I close the laptop lid nothing happens (monitor is still on -> bad for battery) so I want to create acpi hook that will shut the monitor down on LID/CLOSE but I don't know how (besides xset dpms off that is)
