Is there a way to set the monitor so it automatically turns off when you log off?

Yes. But that's a software search I leave to you since this is a hardware forum. The OS in use may matter.

The APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled.
To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon,click Properties>Hardware>Device Manager>View. Check the box labeled "Show Hidden Devices." If it's available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem.
Or, to check the other side of the APM/ACPI coin, open the Power Options applet in Control Panel. If there is an APM tab, make sure the "Enable Advanced Power Management Support" box is checked.
Good Luck
Bryan.
