You are basically asking for:
-A way to display only exposure related info on LCD, which you can via display option (or, turn it off completely)

There is an option to turn "off" the monitor via custom button, but it will still stay powered on, it's just black. I wouldn't sacrifice a button for that.

So the idea is to turn off the lcd completely and only use it for reviewing. Tbh I don't think that there is much demand for such an option. The settings info screen is perfectly fine functionality-wise. The EVF will stay off until you move the camera to your eye, the LCD will only show the settings.

Doesn't solve the power consumption issue of course - unless the settings screen needs considerably less power than the live view. But I guess we'll never find out
