Latest working kernel version: 2.6.27.X
Earliest failing kernel version: 2.6.28.X
Distribution:Slackware 12.2 (current)
Hardware Environment: Lenovo 3000 C100 (i915GM)
Problem Description: If I boot on my PC linux-2.6.28.X LCD powerdown isn't
Steps to reproduce:
If I set "setterm -blank 5 -powerdown on, setterm -powerdown 15" it goes only
LCD blanking but powerdown isn't functional. In the X (x11-xorg + KDE4.2) I set
xset dpms force off
DPMS don't work too.

Here is my .config.
From the description it seems that this is a regression.
Will you please use the git-bisect to identify the first bad commit which causes the regression?
sorry, but at this time I don't have the opportunity to test older working kernel with git-bisect.I don't have source and .config 2.6.27.X kernel version.

We seem to have a DPMS-related regression here and I don't even know
which subsystem might have caused the breakage. (iow: who do I blame? ;))
Bug #12653 could be a dup, but affects 2.6.26 as well.
The DPMS is controlled by graphics driver. And it is not touched by ACPI/PM.
Maybe you should open a new bug at http://bugs.freedesktop.org/ and attach the corresponding info.
As the LVDS DPMS is not controlled by OS, instead it is controlled by graphics driver.
IMO this is a graphics driver bug rather than a power management bug.
So this bug will be rejected.
It will be better that the bug reporter file the bug at http://bugs.freedesktop.org.
And this bug will be rejected.
