Pentax K-50: How to turn off the LCD screen?

I have been told that there is no button to turn off the LCD screen. As I am a confirmed viewfinder user and because LCDs use a lot of power, I'd like to know whether it can be turned off easily.

Welcome to the Pentax Forums!

Press the "Info" button on the back twice for status screen options, one of which is "screen off".

What he said. The only thing is that you have to redo this anytime your turn off the camera. There is no permanent off. I wish there was.

That sucks. Is that even the case when the camera is set to remember the Shooting Info Display (Manual page 217)? The manual is a little foggy on that feature and I don't have a K-50 at hand to test. It might be worth a try.
