    I don't think it can be done but figured I'd ask maybe there's other options out there. I basically want to sleep the display but keep things mirrored to my TV set. If I put it to sleep normally it shuts off on my TV.

    If not, can I turn down the brightness beyond what the keyboard allows me via some app maybe?

    It's supposed to turn off your display.

    No luck it asks to sleep shutdown etc and sleep shuts off the display on the iMac and HDTV mirrored
