I solved the not-turnin-off-problem by replacing /etc/acpi/ with this:

sleep 10
exit 0

so in case TDE (or any other DE) fails to  shut down propperly in 10 seconds, 
the laptop is guaranteed to shut down.

The not-screen-blanking can be solved by using the Xservers dpms settings:

xset +dpms
xset dpms 60 90 120

you may want to look at xset manpages :-)
