Command to make your monitor to go into the standby mode

Here is one of my favorite commands, using which you can force your computer monitor to go into the standby mode.

/usr/bin/xset -display :0.0 dpms force off

After learning this command, I have stopped touching my monitor's power button. B)

P.S.: This commands requires ACPI enabled kernel. Also, it requires acpid to be installed in your system. In Ubuntu, these are installed by default.
