Afterlooking into the matter, there doesn't seem to be a good way to actualy turn off the monitor on an imac. I don't want to damage the monitor by leaving it on the entire time the imac is running, but I also don't want to have to turn of the computer like 4 times a day.

I know how to get the monitor to emulate a black (off) screen, but the backlight is still on. How do you coupe with the problem?Will I be damageing the monitor if I leave it on w/ a screenaver running (or just a black screen)?

Do the programs pbbuttons and gtkpbbuttonsd work on an iMac? They let you controll the screen on powerbooks/iBooks. You might try them.
