2.6.20 in Ubuntu Feisty doesn=E2=80=99t either.

I=E2=80=99d love to see a solution to this. The relevant Malone bug is #428=
but from what I gather that solution requires the external monitor to
be plugged in on boot. I put the suggested options in my xorg.conf,
but pressing Fn+F7 doesn=E2=80=99t turn off my LCD (haven=E2=80=99t tried i=
t with the
external monitor plugged in, though).

This works in Ubuntu Feisty out-of-the-box.

When we=E2=80=99re at it, an attempt to dim the screen with Fn+End blanks
it totally, and I have to restart X blindly to get anything back.
The Power Management=E2=80=99s brightness slider works properly, though.
