    Hi,
    I am wondering if you can make the slide black during a keynote presentation. I mean, if you do a slideshow in powerpoint and use a PC the you can just press b on the keybord and the monitor gets black, its good when you want the audience to listen and not look at the pictures...
    Can you do this Wien using an iPad???

    I have never used Pages for a power point but couldn't you slip in photos that have been taken in a dark room so they are black.....wouldn't that give the appearance of a black screen? Just a suggestion, haven't a clue if it would work.

    hpulmer....your eyes are freaking me out just a tad. :O

    Sorry leelai, that is my only pic with contacts removed ;)

    I have tried the above (though it is more easy to insert a black shape instead of a dark photo). In keynote itself you cannot paste a link to that slide (which is possible in PowerPoint on the PC - I did not know about the "b" trick), so it would have to be placed exactly there where the OP would need the screen off... what I understand he just wants to have it go dark from time to time in certain moments when his audience does not pay the necessary attention to him...

    How about remotely putting the beamer to energysave or (of course depending on the location of the beamer) placing a cardboard in front of the lens?

    Peter - just curious: are you displaying your presentation using an LCD projector? If so, don't those usually come with a separate controller? Mine does, and I believe it will allow you to black or freeze the screen. Might be wrong, but worth checking.

    I am interested in getting a projector for doing presentations. What kind are you using with yours? Would you recommend it?

    I'm probably wasting my time, since the OP hasn't been back; but in case anyone else is interested I stumbled on a workaround for this problem.

    What you do is open another app with a display that you want. A black picture in Photos would work, or if you want something a little more aesthetic you could substitute any non-distracting photo. Open the desired photo full screen before you launch Keynote.

    Now, whenever you want to blank your screen during the presentation use the four finger swipe to go back to the Photos app. Ta da, a black screen. Swipe back to Keynote of continue the presentation. The transition is ugly, jumps around a bit, but it works.
