>>>3a. Have you tried jhb's acpi_video_dpms patch?

So, here is what I've tried out in the meantime:

Applied the dpms patch, now the background light turns off properly.
But now it doesn't resume correctly any more. The screen is destroyed.
So, I commented out the dri module in my X-Conf. This leads to no
noticeable change. The screen still doesn't show up properly. Next step
was playing around with those two variables


I tried all combinations (dri was permanently disabled). No effect.

Mmh, we are very close :-)
