Multi-Monitor Blanking in Windows 7

Can someone suggest me on how to blank screens for a multi-monitor setup?

I have used IOCTL_VIDEO_SET_OUTPUT_DEVICE_POWER_STATE for windows XP and it works just perfect for me. This has been deprecated in Windows 7. Is there something similar I can try for windows 7?

Ahh. My bad. By that, I meant programmatically.

I know that way. Could you suggest me some other way which could be a part of my own script? Maybe some APIs I can use?
