Default [Q] How can I disable Display when using SlimPort to HDMI output

I may be a bit wrong but currently I am using a Slim Port to HDMI adapter to mirror my Nexus 5 display to TV while travelling.

Anyway I have to leave the Nexus 5 screen turned on during mirroring and when I lock the screen also the TV screen gets blank.

Is there a way to lock the N5 screen and TV still keeps showing running Videos? I think this is by design but just wondering???

Don't think so, as typically turning off the display would also turn off the touchscreen itself, so even if you could pull this off, unless you were using some sort of remote way to control the phone, it would probably be useless. You can however try some sort of third party app or tweak that allows you to turn the screen brightness either very low, or completely turn off the backlight, but that would still have the display running

Ok... Thanks the was my thought... Problem is that battery drains faster during video playback than it can be charged...

I've never used it but looks like it might do the trick.
