Hi All,
    I like many have suffered the battery drain of the laptop screen 
remaining on while the system is suspended. I've created a driver that 
allows the screen to be shutdown by DPMS provided acpi supports video 
mode changes. Beware, this is my first kernel driver so it's nothing 
great. Hopefully it will help someone with enough knowledge build a 
better driver.

It's a loadable kernel module and the only tweak required to get it 
compiling should be in the Makefile.

You can grab it from:
