How to Switch Off Monitor and Computer at the Same Time

Turning off all of your devices can save you up money at the end of the year, however you might encounter yourself in the situation where the buttons of your monitor are not working properly, or perhaps you just want to automate the process of shutting the monitor off (or other devices), if this is the case, there is a solution for this.

There are two states in which the monitor can be; off, sleep mode. Usually when you turn off your computer, the monitor will go on sleep mode automatically to save energy. Unfortunately, there’s no way to turn off the monitor directly without extra hardware. To accomplish this you will need to buy a smart power strip.

Method # 1: Buying a smart power strip to connect your devices

  1. Connect your computer to the master outlet in the smart power strip.
  2. Connect the monitor into the switch/controlled outlets on the smart power strip.
  3. The master outlet basically controls the other outlets, and once the master outlet stops providing current, the controlled outlets will as well.At this point, once you shut down your computer, your monitor will shut down too.
