If you have a Mac in your bedroom, you may want its display (but not the computer itself) to go to sleep, when you go to sleep.

NightyNight allows you to toggle display sleep on and off with a single mouse-click.

I have a PowerBook G4 from 2004 with that keyboard shortcut, so it's nothing new. However, I currently use a similar utility called SleepDisplay in conjunction with Spark to put my desktop's display to sleep when I hit the F19 key in the very corner of my keyboard. It's more convenient than the three-key equivalent.

I don't see why this is necessary (anymore). Maybe this feature wasn't in place in 2006, but now you can press Control-Shift-Eject to cause the display to go to sleep. Thought this might help anyone still wondering how to do this.

I use this nightly on my iBook; perfect for listening to audiobooks or tunes as you go to sleep.
