    I just want to put the display to sleep (not the whole computer) and there used to be a shortcut to do it
    CTRL+shift+power button (or eject on older laptops w dvds)
    now w the touch bar it doesn't work so just wondering if anyone knows it ?

    You can add a Screen lock button to the Control Strip by customizing it in the Keyboard preferences. It should do the trick. Not sure if there is a way to do it via regular keyboard shortcuts.

    I added the sleep button to the touch bar menu via settings, keyboard, customize control strip.

    I have Brightness, Volume, Sleep, Launch Pad.
