It's supposed to go completely black.
I have a sony vaio, and I had this problem. Does your screen LOOK like it's black, but when you have a light up close to it, or you see it in bright daylight, can you still make out whats on the screen? I had to send mine in, and they replaced part of the screen. Apparently some models are really sensitive.
The good news is, after I've sent it in, it's still taken quite a few knocks and works flawlessly now. Maybe it was a release model defect.
