Monitor Sleep on Screen Lock

I lock my screen when I know I'm popping away from the computer for a few minutes. It therefore makes sense to place the screen(s) in sleep mode while I'm away.

On Linux, I use this handy script from a fellow called Marco. I've packaged it up for Debian and Ubuntu users to make it easier to install, and can be downloaded from here.

On Windows, I use this little program from a fellow called Kevin.

Create a keyboard shortcut to each and use that as your new lock screen shortcut. It makes a big difference if you use dual monitors like me. :-)
