I have his same issue, so what I do is use the other fingers on my left hand to mute the string. I also use the harmonics to my advantage. I fret the note I want to play with my left hand, and do a pinch harmonic 12 frets higher with my right hand. It gives a really cool sound that reminds me of the square wave bass synths on some dubstep songs. But yeah, I mostly use my left hand to mute harmonics and my right hand to mute the entire string.
I fall asleep to Nightwish, Dragonforce, and Epica... and sometimes with my guitar still in my lap.
