Blank it is a program that will blank the screen after a certain period of time. The good thing about this program, is that it will ignore whatever key pressed to bring the screen back up. The advantage of this is there might be times when the next keystroke could be critical and hitting a key to bring back the screen could screw your work up. There is also a hot key command, so that if you are leaving the computer, you don’t have to wait for the timeout period, or to insure privacy. Also this program supports the mouse.
