Monitor Standby Now


Looking for a simple way to save energy and help protect ourenvironment?

With our Monitor Standby Now you can make a difference right from your PC.

Simply download and install Monitor Standby Now and you will be able to activate your screen’s sleep mode instantly. The time and annoyance you'll save by using this easy to use and well tested product is well worth the tiny price!

What is the Standby Mode and what does Monitor Standby Now do?

The Standby, or sleep mode is an energy saving setting that shuts off your monitor’s display after your computer hasn’t been used for a while. Turning off the screen when the computer is not in use can help you save money on your electricity bills and is an easy way to make your PC more green. You can decide how long you would like the delay to be in the Windows XP power management settings.

Wouldn’t it be great if you didn’t have to wait for the standby feature to turn on? Software Candy’s Monitor Standby Now gives you a shortcut to the low-power sleep mode anytime you want. Once Monitor Standby Now is installed on your computer all it takes to start the sleep mode immediately is to double-click the icon on your desktop or to press the Alt + F10 hotkey combination together. When you want your screen to be restored just hit any key or move your mouse.

As with all Software Candy products, Monitor Standby Now is completely free of any viruses or spyware (digitally signed for authenticity and integrity) and is well tested for its advertised features. If ever needed, you can also uninstall it completely with a single click, performing a total cleanup after itself.

Save money and make your computer system greener with Software Candy’s Monitor Standby Now.

The beauty of this wizard is that you don't have to follow any complex instructions. Once you download this app (keep it on your desktop or in an easy-to-find folder), you double-click it, click the Next button on the installation wizard and you are ready to go:

To place your monitor to sleep (standby mode), do either of the following:
  • Start Menu > All Programs > Software Candy > MonitorStandbyNow > MonitorStandbyNow
  • Double-click the MonitorStandbyNow shortcut on your desktop.
  • Press the key combination Alt+F10.

If you are wondering when you should turn off your monitor for energy savings, you are not alone. There is a small surge in energy when any device (monitor included) starts up but this small amount of energy is still less than the energy used when your monitor is running for long periods of time.

The US Department of Energy recommends that for energy savings and convenience, consider turning off your monitor if you are not going to use your PC for more than 20 minutes.

Make sure you have the power-down feature set up on your PC through your operating system software. This has to be done by you, otherwise the PC will not power down.

Note: Screen savers are not energy savers. Using a screen saver may in fact use more energy than not using one, and the power-down feature may not work if you have a screen saver activated. Also note that modern LCD color monitors do not need screen savers at all.

  • Q1. I saw some references to a "command line". What is it? Do I have to know what a command line is?
  • A1. No, you don't have to know how to type commands or what a command line is. All you do after downloading and saving our  MonitorStandbyNow to your desktop (or any folder) is double-click it, click Next, Next, Finish on its wizard and your program file association will be magically restored.
