You still have FreeBSD and DragonFlyBSD to try to complete your journey :)
I am sorry but I cannot find information about your version of Xorg or if you tried to enable ACPI support in your kernel as suggested.
Eric Haszlakiewicz also asked you a question: "When the screen goes black does Ctrl-Alt-Backspace get you back to
a text console?" which you did not answer.
Did you run xorgcfg as suggested and changed it manually ?
You can try to use the config from Linux changing the device name of the mouse.
