Disabling shoulder buttons when the lid is closed

There is another problem, which is related (sort of) on the TODO list.

When the screen blanks, it turns the Speaker output off (but not the
headphones).  I'm pretty sure this is just a case of changing which
registers get set during a screen blank, but never got any further
than that.
