Can you tell us which generation XO you are asking about ?
They are all somewhat different.

The backlight in all XO laptops draws 1W at full brightness.
dim it, and you can save 40% of that.   Blank it, and you save
the full 1W, plus another 300 mW or so for the DCON and
display electronics.   Go to sleep, and you save all that plus
much more.
