Bug Description

Binary package hint: acpi-support

i press the Fn + F5 button and the wireless and bluetooth should turn off but they dont.

My laptop also has a switch on it that preforms the same function and it works properly just not the hotkeys

here is my laptop https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/Lenovo3000N100

Please try to track down the keyboard code or ACPI event that this key is sending by following the guide at:

  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTestingTeam/HotkeyResearch

and also including your 'dmidecode' data so that we can identify your laptop.

Changed in acpi-support:
status: Unconfirmed → Needs Info

Thanks for the DMI data. Have you had any luck finding out what hotkey or ACPI event the Fn+F5 combination produces?

Also could you try manually doing:

  sudo modprobe ibm_acpi

and then again checking for any messages in:

  /var/log/messages

and:

  /var/log/acpid

I have been having some odd experiences. When i monitor the hotkey
presses I dont see any activity when i press the Fn + F5 combination.
I get hotkey output when pressing other keys just not this
combination. The result is the same for the other bugs i filled about
hotkeys. Fn + F4 and Fn + F12. There is no hotkey or acpi out put
associated with either of these.

It maybe the machine is behaving like a ThinkPad in some way; can you try the 'ibm_acpi' part suggested in the previous message.

Sorry for the maybe silly question, but:
Are you sure that it should work - when there is also a switch at the front of the laptop, which turns the stuff on and out?

Then you have a switch turned on, but with Keycodes turned of.. When you want to activate it via the switch again, you have to switch twice..

!?!

PS: And again - a Lenovo 3000 is no IBM! People think all the time such things like ibm_acpi etc. will work.. Why?

PPS: ThinkPad stuff is another story.

Did we manage to find a keycode/ACPI event for this to be handled?
