Anyone know how to do this to conserve battery power?

Win key and P then select the external display only.
Don't forget to swap back before you swap back though

If you forgot, I presume a reboot sorts it?

Wouldn't know as I leave the screen on. A decent battery charger should keep it going anyway (my asus charger actually charges while using the linx unlike the stock charger).

You have to activate the standard keyboard (oxymoronic almost that the standard keyboard is not in the standard setup!).

Settings, devices, typing, add standard keyboard etc.

Why would you try this without an external keyboard so you could turn the tablet display back on without power cycling ? (Without an active touchscreen you'd have to go for the forced powerdown anyway as obviously you can't slide down to power off when using the power button as per normal)
