Yup. C-a H interactively or "log on" in ~/.screen

You don't kill it outright -- you SIGHUP it and it detaches to wait for
a reattach -- the scroll-back isn't even lost. This feature is of

modem connection but not wish to logout, however it works very well for
"sharing" a session amongst co-operating administrators too!
