'Noisy' meaning sound, or image noise?

Storing and resetting the old level is already done by pmud. Currently the
whole video hardware is put to sleep instead of just turning the backlight
off (fblevel off instead of fblevel 0) if supported by the kernel driver.
What would your solution provide that's not already done? Leaving the
video hardware on but switch backlight off??
