I've just measured it now.
Unfortunately my meter lacks accuracy on this range, but in two tests,
with or without backlight, without any battery, I saw a 20mA (+/- 10mA)
improvement as a result of disabling the amplifier with alsamixer. The
hiss from the speakers also went away. (I had to place my ears within a
few inches to be able to hear the change). The input voltage 12.06V.
There was no change to the current consumed during suspend.
