i know lcd consumes heavily power.
Sometimes turning off only lcd could save power.
But ibook g3 allows only blank mode.
Of course, I can turn off it by pressing Fn-F1, but any screensaver doesn't use it.
the command of `xset dpms force suspend` only makes the screen blank not suspend.
Is there any method for suspending screen in software-level?

Have you put Option "DPMS" under the Monitor section of xorg.conf?

Code:

# **********************************************************************
# Monitor section
# **********************************************************************

# Any number of monitor sections may be present

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "My Monitor"
    HorizSync   31.5 - 75.0
    VertRefresh 40-150
    DisplaySize 264 194
    Option      "DPMS"
EndSection

You can use pbbuttonsd to do this:
Code:
onAC_TimerAction      = blankscreen
onAC_SuspendTime      = 1200   ; 2 min ; time in 1/10 seconds
