I see there is no setting to turn the monitor off after the screen is locked unlike the one for screen locking which can be set to act after the monitor has been turned off.

I do not want the system to automatically lock the screen however, so I only want it the screen to turn off after some time after the screen has been manually locked.

Is there a way to automatically turn the monitor off after the screen has automatically locked?
