Windows 7: turn off laptop screen

turn off laptop screen

I have an HP laptop. I have the settings to turn off the screen after 5 minutes of inactivity, however, I think that using Majic Jack as my phone service may show the system always being active.

Is there a way I can manually turn of the screen without shutting down or going to sleep mode, which would also turn off the Magic Jack?

Thanks,

Thanks,

How about using the Blank screen saver option ?
