Automatically turn off Monitor or Screensaver?

Hi, I am building some php script that will backup a mysql database
and store it locally.  This script will be run on a spare computer I
have in my office.  I want the results of the backup to be displayed
on the screen, through a web browser, but I ran into a small problem
with this: leaving the monitor on 24/7 while displaying a text report
that will often look similar may have the potential to burn an image
into the monitor, and ruin it.

Is there a way to have the php script "wake up" the computer during
business hours, so that the computer goes from a state of a
screensaver or turned off monitor to an "awake" monitor?

If it is a Linux computer, yes, I think. If it is a windoze computer,
No, I don't  think so.
