What do you mean by "going noisy" ? A known problem when going
to sleep is XFree leaving the display in some strange state (looks
like it restores the mode & depth registers to what they where when
it got entered but leaves the framebuffer to it's X content, thus
displaying garbaged display). This is just a cosmetic problem.

The kernel driver itself kicks in very late in the sleep process
and starts by shutting down the backlight.

There is a known problem sometimes with the backlight going down,
then back up, then back down on sleep, I'm not sure what's the
cause, I suspect it's related to either X doing a screen blank
or the console subsystem blanking stuff that tries to kick in
early during the sleep process.
