Does there is any option or settings (native to vlc player or windows) to automatically turn off the display when playing a video in it.. Could be handy when want to listen only to audio and making screen off for battery efficiency. I am using Windows 8 on Dell laptop.
After doing some search on I got the answer; the video could be turned off by disabling video and enabling screensaver in the video settings (in show all setting) of vlc player. The trick was simple but only if you have knowledge. This tip could be useful for me type newbies approaching this site for answers.
