API to turn off the display

currently closing the lid doesn't properly turn off the display (when running 
X it gets to console mode, but doesn't turn off completely).

I'd like to get tackle this by hooking into devd until this hopefully is 
resolved, but cannot find any information on a userland utility or system API 
for the vga/syscons/screen drivers to accomplish that.

Is there such a thing?
