This is something I thought about doing at one point, but never actually got
round to it.  The way I was considering was to make use of the monitors
power saving features to disable it, rather than to actually "black-out" a
screen.  Some problems with this one might be:

* If a user moves the mouse at the server end, will it then reactivate the
monitor?
* If the system crashes during a connection, will the screen then return?
Could be dangerous if it doesn't!

These are all issues that need to be looked into.  Maybe it might be an idea
to find out how PC Anywhere does it, then implement a similar thing.  I
don't think it will be particularly difficult, but it may well require a
fair amount of research.
