Turn off screen while not in use

I'd like to be able to turn off the screen on my nest hub (2nd gen) automatically. What I mean by this is after a period of inactivity (say, 5 minutes) that the screen automatically turns off, similar to how a computer screen goes into sleep or hibernation mode and goes black after the desired amount of time.

I know I can use the "turn off" command to do this. And I know I can set it up as a step as part of a routine. Is there a setting either in the Nest Hub settings or in the Google Home app that can make it happen automatically after a period of inactivity?

TIA

In the Google Home App there is a setting.  Find your display then:

(Nest Hub Name) -> Settings -> Display -> Screen timeout

Thank you! That also showed me a whole new settings menu. I appreciate it!
