acpi installd, Lid close, LCD not off:
Install acpid an what see button/lid events in
the /var/log/acpid. Google for radeontool to turn backlight
on and off (works on my D600m). In the web you'll find how to
use radeontool and acpid.
XDPMS: xset force dpms off
There's a patched Xfree4.3 radeon driver (already in CVS) that
supports LCD backlight on/off. Google or check the D600
tuxmobil pages it in there somewhere.
The radeon_drv.o I found was build on mandrake but works also
on debian here.
