You can't. The only time the monitor is off on an iMac is if it's sleeping (pulsing orange) or if the iMac is off (no light).

AFAIK, there is no way to turn off the monitor itself manually, but yes in OS X, the monitor will shut off at a different time then it will go to sleep if you wish.

You may be able to find a utility of some sort that turns off the monitor on VersionTracker or MacUpdate.
