Is there any option native to VLC player on windows to automatically turn off the display when playing a video in it? Could be handy when I want to listen only to audio with the screen off for battery efficiency. I am using Windows 8 on Dell laptop.

If you use cvlc or nvlc, you can use the --no-video option:

nvlc --no-video ""

The video could be turned off by disabling video and enabling screensaver in the video settings (in show all setting) of vlc player.
