In short, you don't. You can group the layers into a set, that may get you the result you want. Or maybe not, it depends on what you need to do.

Another way to go is to make a copy of your document, turn off all the other layers, flatten the doc, then copy the layer over to the other doc. The downside is that you'll lose any transparency in the layers, but you can always bring it back again (hint: make a mask and save it as a path first).

Evidently if you merge to a background layer it will maintain the blending mode. How do you make a new background layer?

thanks man!

You have to flatten the doc to get a new background layer. Again, you can duplicate the doc, get rid of irrelevant layers, and flatten from there, then drag your other layers into the new doc.
