Manually turn off backlight?

Once I finish using my Bold (like I'm done with a phone call) I want to immediately/manually turn off the backlight to save on the battery.  Is that possible, or do I have to wait until the auto off timer does it?

You have to wait until the timer turns it off.  Or you can put it in standby when you're done.

If you put it in a case it turns the backlight off (and locks the screen).   There is a magnet inside that the device detects.
