Hey guys.

So here's a question, how do you activate this screen shade? It would
be cool to know.

You are correct that the screen curtain in JAWS will not save
significant battery on a laptop since it only turns off the actual display,
but does nothing with the backlight (which is actually a edge-spill light,
but that doesn't really matter). You have a lit black screen.

Just activated it on/off with INSERT+SPACE,F11 and it's clear
that the backlight remains on. Whether it remains on for hours I cannot
say, and I cannot use my computer without looking at the screen.
