    Hello all,

    New forum and surface pro user here!

    I've googled for this and tried searching the forum but can't find an answer... yet I believe that it must be a common problem that everyone must have searched for at some point? Maybe I'm being really thick :)!

    I can't find a way to just sleep the display, so without locking the device or affecting functionality. Does anyone know how to do this please?
    It doesn't seem to be an option that I can change the power button to do. Do nothing, sleep, hibernate or shutdown being the only options.
    Sleep obviously kills all of the apps that are currently being used such as music player, youtube etc.

    It doesn't have to be done through the power button, at this point I'm just looking for any way I can just turn the display off.

    Thanks all for your time.

    Kind regards,

    c1tric

    I don't know if there is an easy way. If I wanted to do this, I'd set up a blank screen saver with either a short activation time or use a 3rd party screen saver control to activate the screen saver.
