I ws confused about this when I got mine, and it's very poorly documented.

You just leave it and the screen goes away. Really.

I bought a leather case for mine, so when I'm done I just close the case
and put it into my jacket (inside) pocket.

It took me a little while to get to trust it (which is why I consider it
badly documented, because it's behaviour contrary to expectation), but
it seems to work.

What I *do* get (unrelated) is the occasional hang on the wifi side,
with the wifi monitor failing to relinquish a network when I move out of
range. Normally you get the "ching-chung" noise, but if not, check it,
as I have found it hung with the screen shining, which of course runs
the battery down in an hour or less. But it's very rare.
