Greetings:

I understand that the eMac's CRT "display sleep" mode doesn't really power down but just darkens the display, as shown by the instant start up when you break sleep -- which truly powered down CRTs can't do (need several seconds to).

Is there a third party program which can truly power-down the CRT for "display sleep" while other processes are at work? I'm watching my 'lectric bills and this would really help.

Short of a hardware switch to cut screen power, there's nothing you can do.
