shortcut to turning off the screen (while screen is locked)

when the playbook is in standby mode or when otherwise the screen is off, we can swipe from bottom bezel to top bezel to turn on the screen.

 

Is there a similar shortcut for turning off the screen? The only way I know to turn off the screen (while screen is locked) is to press the power button. However a simple swipe gesture on the screen would be much preferred.

 

Thanks.
