Turning Off The Display

Hey there,

does somebody know if it is possible to turn off the Neo's display?
Currently only the backlight is disabled and the display still stays on
(what's totally useless and a waste of energy).
I tried to use xset, but the driver seems not to support dpms.
Any hints?
To recognize that the display stays on when the backlight is off you need a
high-contrast background (the screenlock-background has nearby no contrast,
so you won't see it, but you can open the vkeyboard which stays opened even
if the Neo is locked) and a flashlight. :)
