the problem is x will bring the screen up the moment it gets any touchscreen
interrupts. backlight then must be on and screen will display whatever contents
it has. we need to do some mods to x to have backlight controls in x and then
leave it entirely to the "screensaver" to decide what to do on wakeup (when x
will report the sceensaver/blank has ended).
