I realize it's a very small current draw, but is there a way to turn off the display?

You can adjust when it comes on and when it turns off. Turning it off is called a "Sleep Event" and turning it on is called a "Wake Event" Look at page 17 and 18 in your manual.

Set the Sleep Event
By default, the ScanGauge will shut down within 10-15 seconds of turning off the vehicle. If it does not shut down, there is a small risk that one of the vehicle’s ECUs and ScanGauge will stay on and drain the battery. If the ScanGauge does not shut down, you can set the SLEEP EVENT parameter to 0 RPM. This will have the effect of allowing ScanGauge to “sleep” when it sees 0 RPM for a period of 10-15 seconds.

Set Wake Event
The WAKE EVENT parameter allows you to set the signal level ScanGauge looks for to power up. The default setting is Normal Volts. This should work
for the majority of vehicles. If however, the ScanGauge has trouble either turning on, or staying powered down, you may need to set the WAKE EVENT parameter to either High Volts, or Low Volts.
