Bug#308495: general: pmud does not turn off display

Package: general
Severity: grave

When I close the lid on my iBook (clamshell, c.2000), pmud creates a
screen with text on it, e.g. black screen with white text, but does
not turn the screen off. It is definitely noticeable if the machine is
sitting in a dark room. The green power light does go into pulsating

apmd has been purged though it does have a remnant file in /etc/power,
e.g. apm|. (I assume it belongs to apmd.)
