    When your screen is that low it will not dim automatically with no activity and thus will go straight black. If you move the mouse at just the right time the darkness will only last a second. It doesn't sound like a video card issue and in my opinion the worst case scenario is a backlight issue but I'd wait for another instance under different conditions.

    Check your display settings. If the "dim" setting is checked, then what designgeek stated is most likely true and isn't a hardware related issue.
