DPMS by other means?

The Samsung TV I use as a monitor does not support DPMS,
but it can (naturally) be controlled by an IR remote.

Is there any way to get hooks into the power management
so I can grab control of a DPMS off and actually send
an IR command to turn off the TV and vice-versa?

(Obviously this depends on having a way to send IR
commands, which I indeed do have).
