Hi, I have an Inspiron E1505/6400 with the dreaded X1400....OS X runs only at 1024x768, but i can live with that. What i can't live with is the fact that the display does not go to sleep....i dont care if the computer dosen't sleep, but i desperately need a way to switch off the display. Tried various widgets and utilities and such, but to no avail.

I've noticed something interesting...whenver i put the computer to sleep, or the time arrives when the display *should* sleep...the screen just freezes until i move the mouse. If a screensaver is running, it'll freeze till i move the mouse. This may be imply that the display is actually sleeping, as the screen stops responding....but the backlight unfortunately stays on.

I hope someone can help me switch off the backlight as well. Thanks.
