Hello everyone I'm looking for some opinions/advice. I apologize for posting this here but this is the most technical spot dealing with Yahoo that I have found. I have to be awake long hours and I use yahoo messenger to keep in touch with both friends and business contacts, but I hate leaving my monitor on for hours on end when I'm just waiting for someone to sign on.
Is there any way that an addon could be built for Windows/Yahoo, so that if I set my monitor to turn off after a certain amount of time (control panel>power options) and receive a popup from yahoo (a new email, someone signing on, a new message) yahoo could automatically turn my monitor back on?
If it IS possible, would I start on the Yahoo end or the Windows end?
This isn't really the right place for this question, but we aim to please at Yahoo!
While I haven't tried it a bit of searching on suggests that http://www.rtsoftwares.com/MonitorOn/ might do what you want. It looks like it has a free trial and costs $5 for the full version. I hope that helps.
