Computer Powersave option

Instead of having a screen saver, set the option to just turn off the monitor. Screen savers use as much energy as a screen in use, but by turning it off after an extended amount of no use (10 min) automatically, energy can be saved, and in turn money. With this setting change, there is no need to manually turn off/on the monitor, as it automatically turns off and back on. This is already being advertised to the general public at www.energysavers.gov
