    I'm using the unibody mbp and wondering if there's a way to manually turn off the screen, except using the hot corner and dimming the brightness to the least.

    Also, I would like to be able to turn the screen off with an assign shortcut (maybe fn+eject??).

    I'm just tired of using the hot corner function.

    Press the brightness down key until it turns off?

    I think there is a key combo that works on the iMac, but I am unsure of its usability or purpose on a laptop.

    turning the brightness to the least doesn't really turn off the screen.

    If you look carefully, u'll see that the screen is still on.
