I just want to shut it off when im not online I wondered if its possible to shut it off via a short cut or something rather than flipping monitor around and searching for the button My pc stays on its on cable thx
Most monitors can only be fully powered off by switching off at the wall socket, other than that they are on stand-by in which state the power taken is very low, but still significant - hence the current pressure to switch all such appliances off at the power source to conserve energy. The standby state is initiated by removing the signal source. This happens when the computer shuts down, but can also happen when the keyboard or mouse isn't used for a period of time.
Go to Control Panel - Power Options - Power Schemes - Turn off monitor after ---- minutes.
A bit of what I wrote above was rubbish! Monitors often have a power switch at the front which completely removes the power, its just that I never use mine and so forgot about it. I turn my whole system off at the wall!
