Hi, just got a new HP dv5z laptop and trying to make sense of how everything
fits together. The wifi button on this laptop doesn't appear to generate any
keyboard event. I loaded the hp-wmi module, and that allows me to toggle the
wlan and bluetooth in software, by writing to
/sys/class/rfkill/rfkill/state. But pressing the button still does
nothing. What am I missing?
Also, disabling the wifi the first time turns the wifi LED from blue (active)
to orange (inactive) which is what I'd expect, but re-enabling it leaves the
LED orange. Again, what am I missing?
Without the hp-wmi module loaded, FN+F7 and FN+F8 would control the display
backlight brightness. With it loaded, these keys do nothing. Seems there's
some conflict between hp-wmi and ACPI. Any suggestions?
