Software/gadget to turn off monitor on multi display?

Hi,

I have two monitors, one has a faulty switch. And so far I have been using my feet to reach the switch whenever I want to turn the faulty monitor off I tried searching for gadgets, and software, but there does not seem to be a proper software which just turn off the monitor. Any suggestions?

Just a thought. If you cannot find anything better, maybe a cheap surge protector, with the on off switch. You can put it right by the computer and then you can turn it on or off.
Maybe, not the best idea, but a great last resort. Good luck.

Yes, that can work, but will look a bit messy.

I found this great software, and I would like to recommend:
Mon0 - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

So with this, case solved.

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
