The only monitor used on a PC that I actively turn off is my TV, otherwise the actual "PC monitors" go right to sleep after no longer detecting signal. I am honestly not sure I know HOW to turn off my main monitor without either feeling around or looking in the manual.

Hope that helps.

most monitors will automatically go to sleep when the device connected is no longer running, but it does no harm by turning the monitor off, the only benefit is the monitor will use little to no power, but not that much less then when in sleep, maybe a watt or 2, but this all depends on how new the monitor is, id say any monitor from the last 5-8 years should act the same way, maybe even older
