    Hi.
    I have 2 monitors.
    how do i make a program that will shut down only the priamry monitor
    i know there's the SendMessage function with SC_MONITORPOWER..
    but when i used it - the program turns off both of the monitors, and i only need one monitor to be turned off.

    any help?
    thanks

    TF3K... Have you developed a way of automatically switching off the primary monitor in windows. I would be very interested in any results you have?
