How turn off screen when close notebook?



Hello again,
I want my notebook's LCD screen to turn off when I close the notebook and
then turn back on when I open it up again.

I opened/closed my notebook and looked in /var/log/acpid:

[Thu Jun  2 15:35:18 2005] received event "button/lid LID 00000080 00000001"
[Thu Jun  2 15:35:18 2005] completed event "button/lid LID 00000080
00000001"
[Thu Jun  2 15:35:46 2005] received event "button/lid LID 00000080 00000002"
[Thu Jun  2 15:35:46 2005] completed event "button/lid LID 00000080
00000002"

So obviously I need to add a conf my /etc/acpi/events dir:

event=button/lid LID 00000080 00000001
action=???turn on LCD???
event=button/lid LID 00000080 00000002
action=???turn off LCD???

What should those actions be?  Thanks for the help.
