possible hotkeys to turn of monitor?

Hi there,
i know this question has been asked a lot of times of multiple forums, but please hear me out. doing some research i found that everyone says there is no hotkey to disable your monitor. BUT, today, my sister cleaned my mom's computer, including the keyboard and she managed to turn off the screen by wiping the keyboard and pressing some random keys in the process. (it's an all-in-one pc so it has no separate monitor and the only button on it is the power button of the pc itself) so my question is, there must be some way to shut down the monitor alone, but how?

Hi fratskop, welcome to Seven Forums,

Are you sure that she turned it off and didn't put it into sleep mode. When you pushed the power button, did the screen come on virtually straight away?

I hope this helps!

pressing the power button did nothing (the computer turned off and back on but the screen was still off) i ended up unplugging the power supply cable because i found no way of turning the screen back on

yes you did, my bad. anyways, a key on the keyboard can be programmed to turn off the monitor, OR your pc may have come with one already programmed to do that from the pc maker. carefully inspect every key label. also, check the manual - your pc maker could also have programmed a key combination.
