Well,. the backlight is one thing, and you cannot fix it. However,
that message is specifically from lcdproc, and as far as I recall you
can customize it. Although the backlight is annoyingly bright, the lit
letters are even brighter, so if you customized the message to be
blank (assuming thats possible), then at least it will be a little bit
dimmer after you shutdown. But if your system can handle suspend to
ram, that would be better (since the backlight will stay off).
