    in the System Preferences application click Energy Saver and then set at time period for when you display will turn off.

    in Mac OS X 10.5 theres a new keyboard shortcut which turns off your display which is "command+shift+eject". i thought youd like this one a lot better ;).

    I've setup a hot corner, so if I put the mouse pointer in the bottom left, it sleeps the display straight away.
