    Toshiba Satellite C640 Function (Fn) Keys Not Working

    Hi everyone,

    I have a Toshiba Satellite C640 notebook running on Ubuntu 11.10 64bit version. While most of the things worked out of the box, some of the Fn (function) key combinations are not working.
    Fn+Esc - Mute/Unmute - Working
    Fn+F1 - Lock - Not working
    Fn+F3 - Suspend - Working
    Fn+F4 - Hibernate - Not working
    Fn+F6 - Brightness Increase - working
    Fn+F7 - Brightness decrease - working
    Fn+F8 - Switch on/off wireless - not working
    Fn+F11 - activate numberpad - working
    And some of the functions, I dont even know about them. I bought the laptop without Windows, I didn't want to waste my money on an OS which I was not going to use anyway...
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.
