That's the underlying problem. So much of this kind of utility is
specific to the manufacturer, and eve to the model within that
manufacturer's line.

I have long used Thinkpads. Recently, I was able to cycle my display off
using FN+F7 or a Thinkpad specific utility. With my latest X61s, I don't
seem to be able to do this. Haven't yet had opportunity to review the
manual for some other way.

PS: When you do get this working, it really does help battery life.
There aren't many perquisites to blindness, but this can definitely be
one of them.

FYI: I tried xbacklight on Fedora--installs OK. But Thinkpad won't
accept it's commands. Oh, well, back to rtfm.
