CxOrg Posted December 9, 2009 Author Report Share Posted December 9, 2009 (edited) The special function keys which work: Lid closed switch - If set to go to suspend works fine. The time to go to sleep could be quicker?? Fn + Esc - Suspend mode works OK Fn + F6 - Speaker mute is in fact volume to 0. Toggles on and off. Fn + F10 - Toggles the touchpad on and off. Fn + F11 - Number lock is probably hardwired in the keyboard itself. Fn + Left arrow key - Lowers the volume OK Fn + Right arrow key - Raises the volume OK That leaves some function keys to fix. It is probably a quiestion of mapping the key to an appropriate script. Fn + F2 - Battery or power use - Toggle the Power management panel? Fn + F3 - Euro key - Nice to have but not essential Fn + F4 - Internal external screen - This depends on RandR support in the OpenChrome driver so we can use RandR commands to control it. Fn + F5 - Backlight on/off toggle - This may be another RandR command. Find out what power management is calling to blank the screen. Fn + F7 - Simply launch the configuration panel. Fn + F8 - Toggle the power saving profiles? Power saving and Performance would be sufficient. Fn + F9 - Toggle WiFi radio - Find out how the hardware can be switched. Fn + Up arrow key - Brightness up - Find out how the Power management panel does this. Fn + Down arrow key - Brightness down - Find out how the Power management panel does this. So 9 keys to fix!!
