Starting screensaver properly

July 17, 2008 2 comments

Once again just one line of code…

::PostMessage( m_hSomeWnd, WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_SCREENSAVE, 0 );

The moment you move your mouse or press any key screensaver disappears, so watch out! 😉

Turning monitor off

Wow man how to do this! Simple, just one line of code to send your monitor into standby mode.

::PostMessage( m_hWnd, WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_MONITORPOWER, 2 );

Do this using a timer and you will have your monitor turned off every 1 second which prevents anyone from turning your monitor on because it goes into standby mode every 1 second ;).

It’s not that secure but still it’s fun or use this to trick your IT friends! 🙂
