I do not, but can likely cobble that up from old remote parts.  I am also 
using a 22" Samsung digital tv whose tuner has failed, as a monitor on my 
cnc controlled lathe, and it would be very nice to be able to skip picking 
up the remote and turning it off as I close up for the night.  As is, it 
does go dark, but the backlight is still on.
