I've been trying to Turn off my display using the power settings in Vista 64 which didn't work for me.
Tried using different programs like Mon0 1.1 etc, i downloaded from Cnet just to turn off my
display but all failed. Display keep turning back on, even when there's no programs running.
I think there are programs running at the background which i don't know what is it,
keeping my display or my computer from going to sleep mode. But seems too complicated for a novice
like me to understand how PC and OS works.

Is there anyway to put the display to sleep mode?
Can anyone help me? Thanks

I am running bootcamp vista 64 on my imac.

Didnt really solve my problem. Found out it's the problem with iMac bootcamp which Apple will likely fix. Something to do with the headphone in-put on iMac, windows can't sleep when it's plugged in.

Thanks all for help and viewing.
