Control Panel as default LCD screen?

Just got the K-1 and so far so good. Is there a way to have the control panel serve as the default LCD screen as the camera starts up? Even better, is there a setting to enable no screen to appear unless I press the Info or Menu buttons?
Thanks,

M

On past bodies if you press info info then you can select the screen you want one of which is "off". It remains off through power cycles until you change it.

Yup, this still applies to the K-1.

You have to press the button to pull up the control panel, though.
