From what I know about Windows and indeed most screenreaders, this function is just for privacy, ie its not going to save any battery.
If that is what you want then I'd have thought it was possible to do it, kind of like a screensaver that never actually loses focus but then you need to be able to tell nvda that you want it to use the invisible window not the visible one.

In the issues tracker there is a thread on this.
Also the ultimate way |of doing this on a desktop is called the monitor off switch..... ahem.

Hi,

VoiceOver has had screen curtain feature for a long while and JAWS recently
got screen shade.

Does NVDA have a similar feature via an add-on or natively?
Thanks!
