Windows 7: Configure laptop's lid angle to turn off the monitor, viable?

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1

Using Power options to turn off the monitor will work when the system has been idle for the set time. If you want to turn off anyway, use that way and simply turn it back on, you'd be doing this anyway.
Other option is not leave it on 24/7 which also can be detrimental to a laptop. If you insist on mistreating your laptop buy a "cool pad" to set it on when you lock it up.
As for screen burn-in use the blank screen saver which makes a black, blank display.
