Here's the magnet you need to activate the Reed switch to put it to sleep: http://www.weloveMacs.com/9227930.html

Have you been into the machine? Slide a paperclip along the bezel bottom to locate the magnet in the bezel. Placing a magnet on the top case in the correct position will "sleep" the display. Being a magnet, it will attach anywhere if knocked out of position. I've found screws stuck to it. Here's a picture for the location of the magnet and switch: http://blog.gregfiumara.com/?p=34
