How can get one of my 2 monitors go to sleep? Answered

 I've got Windows 7 and I am running 2 monitors. Is there a way that I can make only one of them go to sleep? One is a 50" Plasma and the other a 20" LCD. I love to watch movies on the 50" and the 20" can be quite overwhelming due to how bright it is. If you are wondering why I don't just hit the power button, well... it's 8 feet away. 


power saving settings.

Right click on the desktop (somewhere where there are no icons)
Properties -> 
Screen Saver ->
power button (lower right side afaik) ->
"Turn off monitor: !! here's where you select the auto off time!!
