Running Trisquel on Sony SVE1112, and I get the problem that in standby mode the baclight doesnt turn off, also when computer is being shut down with "halt" the backlight doesnt turn off, also laptop doesn't turn off and has to be shut down using the power key.

Bug seems to be explained and fixed on Ubuntu at:

I am using kernel 3.8.5-gnu.

Kind regards,

Tested on stock kernel 3.2.0-38-generic and fails to turn off backlight too.

No wonder it's not fixed in Trisquel -- Ubuntu fixed it Raring only. Trisquel 6 is based on Precise.

I see where they mentioned how to get it fixed in previous versions of Ubuntu here, via the Stable Release Updates procedure:

But for some reason you declined:

However, it appears that you've already done both #1 and #2 as requested.

Upstream should fix this in Precise via the Stable Release Update procedure. In this way, Trisquel will automatically pick up the fix via the usual update process when pulling in new package versions. I added a comment to that bug asking for it to be fixed in Precise.
