Turn off screen while apps run Need help

I'm running the SiriusXM app to stream music but I don't want the screen to keep after I choose my station. Does anyone know of a way to blank the screen? Is there a setting so when there is no touch activity it goes blank?

 

Also If you switch tabs it won't keep running the music in the background?  I have a choice tunes or surf but not both?

 

Thanks

I'm here you wish you were too

Re: Turn off screen while apps run Need help

You should be able to just tap the power button to turn off the screen.  The app should keep running just fine. 

 

If it doesn't, that's a problem with the app.  I also have a music app in the Android Market and it is possible for the programmer to grab what are called "sleep locks" to enable the screen to be turned off without losing required resources like WiFi and the CPU.  My app lets the screen dim, but not go off... however, the user can turn the screen off and the app keeps working.
