If you turn the screen brightness down to zero with the F1/F2 keys, it
will turn the screen off.

You mean, without being connected to mains? There's only one battery, so
if it isn't getting power from somewhere, it goes off when you remove
it. Considering that you can easily get >4 hours off of one battery, I
haven't found that to be a problem :-)
