Energy Star, the EPA program that promotes energy efficient solutions, offers free tools that can set your entire organization's monitors to go into a low-power "sleep" mode when inactive. A simple touch of the mouse or keyboard "wakes" the machine within seconds.  For every 1,000 computers, Energy Star estimates that enabling monitor power management can save your organization 200,000 kWh per year or $20,000 at 10 cents per kWh.
