FS#157 - Backlight problems

I installed Manjaro on a Hp Elitebook 2640p. This notebook can change the backlight level to zero brightness (can’t see anything on the screen). The screen brightness is adjusted via XFCE shortcuts. XFCE Power Manager locks the screen with LightLocker, when the lid is closed. LightDM cannot adjust backlight level via shortcuts. If I turn down the backlight, and close the laptop lid, LightDM doesn’t appear, and the screen backlight can be adjusted only after unlocking.
What about using illum, or acpid for changing backlight?
