Well I didnt know what a dell inspiron looked like so I googled it, and its a laptop eh? Well I don't know how to maneually turn it off when you're leaving, but instead of a screensaver you can set your monitor to shut itself off, and if you set that number to like five minutes then as soon as you leave, it should shut itself off, within that shortamount of time that you select. The only problem with that, is that if you are inactive for five minutes or whatever it will shut the monitor off, but it can help you to save electricity, and if what that other guy said is true and you have to go out and buy a keyboard or something just to shut off the monitor, then maybe it would just be easier this way.
I hope I helpped,
