Blanking screen when in console

Hi all
When running onlaptop battery, I notice that X blanks the screen after a 
short amount of time. However, this doesn't happen in the console, and 
when the console screen eventually blanks, the display backlight stays 
on.

Is there any way to completely blank the screen and turn off the 
backlight in the console?

Thanks

Luke
