Sleep displays via AppleScript
Authored by: craigsheppard on Apr 20, '10 07:16:18PM
One annoyance with this is having to set the sleep corner, especially to the top left. I never set this hot corner as it's so easily activated every time you aim for the Apple or "application" menus.

I also sleep my display with a script (I have a mac in my living room hooked up to a TV, which I can "sleep" - then the TV turns itself off, from my phone).

I use an app called SleepDisplay which I launch remotely over ssh from my "home automation" computer. It works a treat :)

You can add a modifier key with the cursor to activate a hot corner (i.e. the top left apple corner). Just go to the expose & spaces preferences and hold down the modifier key you would like when choosing the hot corner. Made the top left corner useful for me again.
