How to set external display to automatically go to sleep with MBP in clamshell mode?

Is this possible? I've been testing with my energy preferences to put display to sleep after 1 minute, but my external Asus monitor never goes in to sleep mode.

How can I set this up to that it happens automatically after a period of inactivity? I can't use any keyboard commands or hot corners (this is for my parents). The display simply need sot go to sleep after a set period of inactivity.

How to do this?
