It works like this. It is a feature of the XLoad mode. If you don't
have the XLoad mode, it won't happen. The XLoad mode turns the
backlight off if the xload screen is completely blank. That means
that all the displayed load bars must be below a certain level (0.05?)
and not just the current load.

I just tested it and it does still do it if you do 'lcdproc' by
itself. Perhaps when you were trying it, it was generating some short
lived load that was keeping the light on. You have to wait until that
blip moves all the way accross and off the screen to the left.
