I have some monitors that I like to leave on for monitoring sakes. Others, I would like to sleep to not waste power.
Is there a way to do this within Windows? So far I've not found a way to do.

To my knowledge, Windows does not have the ability to set specific monitors to sleep.
The best alternatives I can give you are to:
AFAIK, there is no equivalent of the
IPMI protocol for monitors.
But, there are intelligent remote power strips you can buy that can be controlled via USB/Ethernet [and even RS/232].
They allow a computer to turn the individual sockets on/off at will. They sometimes come with software. But, in any case, the protocol is usually very simple and can often be controlled via a telnet connection.
You'll just have to shop around to find one with the number of output sockets you need and one that matches your budget. They can be ~$100+, the more expensive models support more A/C sockets.
I've also seen some DIY models based on a Rasberry PI
