solve this too. I also have an Inspiron 5150, vanilla 2.6.7 with acpi,
NVidia binary driver 1.0.6111 but istead of Gentoo I'm running
Slackware -current. I'm running the A33 Bios if that matters.
It seems short of powering off the whole system the backlight stays on.

Brad (and anyone interested), I think this may not be solvable with
current driver. I have posted the NVIDIA linux forum with this as
well but not had a useful reply yet.
I will send a mail to this newsgroup if I find out how to do it....
