F11's power management for the display appears broken.  As far as I can
tell all of my F11 systems (all with ATI frambuffers) pick a totally
random number for when to power the screen down.  Most of the time after
walking away for an hour or two I see that the screensaver's logic
correctly turned all the LCD's pixels black, but the backlight is still
on.  Ironically what normally happens is that just a few seconds after I
unlock the screen and start typing the backlight gets turned off.
Wiggling the mouse of hitting some keys will turn the backlight back on.
