    In OSX if you need to turn the iMac screen off you press CTRL + SHIFT + EJECT and this turns off the screen without putting the computer to sleep but when you install Windows using bootcamp it doesn't work. I have installed the latest bootcamp drivers but it still doesn't work. If you have the same problem or have a solution please comment it will really help thanks!

    When you're using Windows through Bootcamp you are in a Windows environment so any Mac based features simply aren't going to work.
    At the moment even the volume/brightness etc. is borked in Win10 so I wouldn't hold out much hope of a fix for any short-cuts.

    Hey thanks for replying I found half of a fix today: when you go to the power settings you can change the function of the power button on the iMac to turn the display off. Also after the installing boot camp drivers for the third time I realised the volume + brightness does work but only directly after boot camp assistant restarts the computer. Hopefully this will all be sorted out soon
