No problem, anirudh, I hope it works for you.
For some reason my display still is getting switched back on again after a few minutes, although I've done: xset s off
gnome-screensaver and xscreensaver are off. So what is switching it back on again? Would somebody else please care to enlighten me?
Btw, I'm only using vbetool because that actually switches off my LCD backlight (which gnome-screensaver and xscreensaver don't).
On a side note: Why does even such a simple thing have to be such a PITA in Ubuntu? xscreensaver just did what it was told to do in Slackware, but Slackware won't even boot on my laptop :/
