    I Have an iMac G3 which i am VNC'ing in. Its never going to be turned off, and im never going to look at the screen, so how do i turn it off? I Want to save the CRT, and its not needed.

    Any help? I Know theres a way to actually turn off my MBP's Screen.

    I don't know if this works on the older iMacs, but if you hit, Control-Shift-Eject it should turn off the screen, but the screen will come on whenever you have any VNC activity, because your VNC actions are being translated into signals from the keyboard and mouse.

    This is not hardware-specific but was a feature added in Leopard. AFAIK it doesn't work in earlier OSes.
