Greetings and salutations,

Is there anything I can do to get Fn key functionality on
my Dell E1405 notebook?  I've seen the patches for video
switching and will try them at some point, but it's not
as important to me as getting suspend/resume and wireless
radio on/off.  Also getting the CD/DVD drive to eject would
be nice.

I'm using the latest and greatest BIOS on this system, and
the output of 'acpidump -dt' is at:


FYI, I can get the system to suspend by hitting the power
button or by Fn+Esc (standby), but it will not wakeup
no matter what I do.  Also, the wireless radio (Fn+F2)
will turn the radio off, but will not toggle it back
on.  Fn+F8 (CRT/LCD) does not work (will try those
patches) and Fn+F10 (eject CD/DVD), Fn+PageUp (vol
up), Fn+PageDown (vol down), Fn+End (mute), also
do not work.
