Sleep Display, when run, immediately sleeps just your display so that you can continue running your background jobs. It doesn't permanently affect your energy settings, so when you start working again, your monitor will not sleep immediately.
What's New
Version 1.0.1:
  • Energy setting changes only made to current profile (AC or battery) not both.
  • New and improved icon.
  • This version may work for people who experienced the monitor going off then coming right back on. As you can imagine, there's only so many setups I can test on my own. But, I hope this version works for everyone.
Requirements
Intel/PPC, OS X 10.4 or later

Shift-Control-Eject will sleep the display, too, so there really isn't much need for an app like this any more.

Or simply use your built-in OS X ScreenSaver preference panel and set your "Hot Corners" function to "Put Display to Sleep".

Then all you have to do to sleep your display is move your mouse into the corner you chose.

For OS 10.5, use Malcolm Hall's utility, also named "Sleep Display".

FYI: Doesn't work on Leopard (big bummer). Developer says that *if* he upgrades to Leopard he may develop a leopard-compatible version.

I use this app all the time. Works fine on a new octo-core Mac Pro with OS X 10.4.10.
