Yahoo add-on to interface with Windows

Hello everyone I'm looking for some opinions/advice. I have to be awake long hours and I use yahoo messenger to keep in touch with both friends and business contacts, but I hate leaving my monitor on for hours on end when I'm just waiting for someone to sign on.

Is there any way that an addon could be built for Windows/Yahoo, so that if I set my monitor to turn off after a certain amount of time (control panel>power options) and receive a popup from yahoo (a new email, someone signing on, a new message) yahoo could automatically turn it back on?

If it IS possible, would I start on the Yahoo end or the Windows end?
