I guess not but maybe you could fill the screen with a jit.window and make it black?

how do you like to turn on : by motion ( some come close and turns on ?

a microcontroller can perform this task,
but the easiest way will be just using a motion activated switch ( go to a hardware store to fin one) or http://www.amazon.com/SensorPlug-Motion-Sensor-Outlet-Plug/dp/B000A3CIUW/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1340141858&sr=8-5&keywords=motion+activated+switch

hope that helps
