I have an iMac 24". Is there a way to turn the monitor off? I have tried Expose and set the top right corner to turn the monitor off but it comes back on by itself when I have processes still running (I leave my iMac running permanently, monitoring my observatory or rendering animation files or running Seti@home etc)
