    I just got an HDMI adapter for my iPad 3 and it streams Netflix nicely to a TV set,but I would like the IPads screen to be
    off during playback to save battery life.Is there a way to have the screen off and maintain the movie playing??

    You might try the JB tweak called "screen dimmer". I set my iPad not to auto-lock, but use screen dimmer to first dim the screen at 1 minute, then turn off the screen at 3 minutes. A tap on the screen at any time brings it back to life...

    Thanks for the response,I ended up finding an app called backgrounder that does exactly what I wanted.
