KP setting question

I just got a KP and I am trying to set it up. Does anyone know of a way to change the time it takes for the rear display screen to go into sleep mode? I would like the rear screen to come on when it turn the e dials to show my settings and would like it to shut off after a few seconds. At present it stays on for 60 seconds. I did find a way to be able to cut the rear screen on and off with the third dial but would really like it to auto-off after about 10 seconds.

One of C1 options is "LCD Display Options" which can be used for this purpose. Additionally, you can "learn" your camera to rememeber the chosen option.

My rear display is permanently off.

I back button focus and have fx3 (exposure comp) set to exposure lock. In Av my back dial is aperture, front is exposure compensation and top is iso the settings for these are in button customisation, there are two pages in the menu
