Thats why you buy Apple™ MBP™ with OS X™ with El Capitan™
On my T400 running xubuntu, closing the lid will sometimes result in a black screen. The backlight is on. However, the desktop is black. ctrl-alt-f1 brings up a terminal just fine.

Ctrl+alt+backspace resets it at a cost of closing everything. Key bind disabled in Ubuntu these days but still works in Linux Mint.
Yes that works for me but now I avoid suspending because it ACPI is too complicated for Linux.
xorg has nothing to do with what your laptop does when turned off, use acpid and pm-utils. also, stay away from proprietary drivers.
