Turning Back Screen Off While Plugged In

On the hero 5, you can set the camera to turn off the back screen after 1 minute.

 

However, when plugged into a 2300 after-market battery, the screen stays on indefinitely.  It drains the battery unnecessarily.


Anyone know how to turn off the back screen while the battery is plugged into the bigger external battery?
