Can you turn the radio on but leave the screen off?

When you leave you finger on the power button the screen turns off (and leaves you with a clock) but it also turns the radio off. Can you override this?

Edited - "sorry I misread the questions - as Scott says instructions for leaving screen on turning radio off - not the opposite as requested" - Yes "to turn off radio and keep on screen", just tap the power button and the radio should turn off, leaving the screen on.

I don’t think so, but you can do the opposite by doing what is in the reply above.

Maybe just turn the brightness down as low as it goes?

I need the answer to this question too.

I do a lot of night driving and any light from the infocentre is really distracting and after an hour gives me eye ache.
All my previous cars had a "turn display off" mode that left the radio on and the verbal GPS instructions.

Sadly it looks like the id3 doesn’t have a “turn off screen” but leave the radio on mode…. Maybe that will come in time!
