turn off the display with power button


New Member
Is it possible to define power button to turn off the display without sleep or hibernate ,like on android tablets? i tried several tutorials from web but it is not working for surface pro 2017: in "control panel->hardware and sound->power options->edit plan settings->change advanced power settings->power button and lid->power button action" absent the option "turn off the display"

I think this was added as part of the Creators update, I can see this on my advanced power settings panel. I'm running Win 10 Pro 1703 (15063.608). And as per another thread I'm on Modern Standby power mode with connected standby disabled Disable Connected Standby .

Thanks a lot for the help!

I did the following work around,that working for me :

1) I set “sleep” option in the "Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options\choose what the power button do\when I press power button"


2) disabled “Connected standby” by:

a. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe).

b. Move to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power.

c. Double-click CsEnabled and set to 0, then click OK.

This disabled the sleep function and turn-off the display instead.

3) Disabled the lock screen after return from "display off" by creating and running .reg file with following content:



4) Restarted the computer
