I doesn't work on my Thinkpad A30p, either. I have found no way to turn
off the screen completely while in supsend. However I have only tried 2
of the 3 sysctls mentioned by Kevin...
I remember it all working under 4.x with APM. I guess I will give that a
try again. Despite these problems, there are some Thinkpads, which are
know to work with acpi. One trick is disabling dri in the kernel /
X-Config. This prevents the system from loading the radeon.ko module,
that is likely to cause this problem whith the background light. Didn't
work here, maybe you are lucky...
