Yes, it works!
Now let's try to turn it COMPLETELY off:
[root@kindle /]# echo -n 0 > /sys/devices/system/fl_tps6116x/fl_tps6116x0/fl_intensity
Yes, it is completely off even while awake!
So, by adding the above commands to a script, you could control the PW screen brightness from a "launcher menu" hack (or a background process that sniffs for "hotkeys", or whatever)...
