I am running a multi-head setup.  I'd like to be able to turn off each 
head individually.

I'm using the evil binary nvidia drivers to set up 4 screens as DISPLAY 
0.0, 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3

I'm not using Xinerama or Twinview.

xset -display :0.0 dpms force off

turns off all 4 displays, as does

xset -display :0.1 dpms force off

and so on.

Any way to reach in and turn off a particular display?

Anyone know if this is possible with nouveau?
