On my machines, locking the screen (lxlock) blanks my screen but leaves the backlight on.

I can turn the backlight off using: xset dpms force off. I've tried implementing this in the lxlock script, but it doesn't seem to work. I have tried some variants (see attachment)

    Added xset here and there

    Also tried `export DISPLAY=:0.0 && xset dpms force off`, same difference.
    Works in terminal, does not work in `lxlock`.
