Try to set this to "no". Similar problems reported to me could be
solved with this. I think recent kernel versions don't need this option
any longer because the backlight is mostly controlled by the framebuffer
driver and switching the backlight off will automatically lead to a
switched off framebuffer display. 

Please tell me your result.

  Best Regards
