I have a PS3 hooked up to my computer monitor but the monitor's touch controls don't work anymore (from now on I buy monitors with physical buttons). The only way I can switch to the PS3 is to either unplug the PC's DVI cable (so the monitor defaults to the PS3's HDMI), or to stand by/shut down my computer which I want to avoid.

I know you can go to Power Options and set Windows to turn off the display after a certain amount of time, but is there any way to do this on command?

There is, actually. I used to use it to turn off the monitor on my laptop when I wanted it to play audio at night. Can't recall the name of the program that does it, but it pops up a little command line, and you have to remember the command you enter. Though you could probably automate the process.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.
