    I quite often just like to set my PC away playing music and listen to it whilst I do something else. I like the fact that the monitor goes to sleep after a while and if I do want to use it, I just use the mouse to wake it.

    However, I still want to use the keyboards media keys and leave the monitor asleep, Any way to do that?

    Yes, I know I could just turn the monitor off but its so much easier (Read:I am lazy) to just wiggle the mouse ;)

    There may be some app out there that will let you do this - don't know of any myself.

    Setup your playlist and just turn the monitor off.

    At the moment I do just set up the playlist and leave it be. But theres always a song that I don't want to listen to.

    Will continue to hunt for something that will do this though.
