      I was just wondering how I could turn off the lcd on a dell 5150. I
      can't get xset dpms force off to work. When I try xset s activate it
      only works for a second then goes back to xwindows. I'm not sure if I
      need apm support or not. Right now I only have acpi support compile
      into the kernel. The reason I would like to do this is because I will
      be writing acpi scripts for the computer. I would like the screen to
      blank when I close the lcd.
