Default Is there a way to disable the mother hen display?

I have about 6,000 miles on my 2010 Prius, almost all of it on the
hilly city streets of San Francisco. Whenever I have a moment to spare
I turn off the preachy and potentially distracting display about the
economies or lack thereof in my driving techniques and practices. But
the next time I start the car the nagging animations are back. Is
there a way to make them stay away until I perhaps ask them to
resurrect themselves?

Take a piece of black paper and trim it to cover the offensive
display. Use a piece of tape to hold it in place.

Top left button next to the display (on my 2004; don't know about
subsequent model years) has an option to blank the display.

Hmm. There are no buttons next to the display. The display buttons
are on the steering wheel. I'll have to think about this some more.
Thanks.

Chuck, you have a 2010 Prius, a model ZVW30, and the 2004 is model
NHW20. The displays are different.

Oh, that's right; the 2010 puts the display in the dash display instead of
in the LCD display.
