Can you try running g-p-m in debug mode and see if you get any warnings?
gnome-power-manager --no-daemon --debug
You will probably need to kill the running process first, you could also
try --verbose for extra debugging info.
You can use dbus to access the backlight controls,
dbus-send --session --dest=org.gnome.PowerManager
You could also try "standby", and "suspend" instead of "off".
