It is an imonlcd version 15c2:0038.

I'm using lcdproc-0.5.3-0ubuntu1, so from a repository.

I was checking it by shutting down the computer. When I shutdown the
LCDd down it seems to be working perfectly.

However when shutting down the computer, it seems that the action OnExit
takes place, but after a second or so the display is kind of reset. For
example, when setting onexit=2 so the LCD is switch off, during the
shutdown process the LCD is shutdown, but as soon as it ends the
backlight is back on.

I have an Antec Fusion Remote Black. Is this a normal behaviour when
using this case?

The file is the correct one /etc/LCDd.conf

Thanks a lot.
