My solution to prevent prying eyes is to hook up an external keyboard to my laptop, then close the lid.

If no one else knows how to use JAWS (or unload it at the very least) then the situation you describe is precisely what you'll have.
The very reason for being of the screen shade is to prevent "over the shoulder" viewing, by anyone, when that's what you wish to prevent. Once the screen is off, it's off until you either flip the toggle, unload/exit JAWS, or reboot.
The reboot part may not still be accurate if a setting has been added to make screen shade persistent unless you turn it off, but I have not heard anything about that.  That was my reason for posting a reference to an earlier topic that discussed how to make that happen without a persistent option.
