I have scoured the Internet trying to find a solution to my problem.
I have a Toshiba L755D-S5171 and like many people the Fn key works to a very small extent.
The Fn+3/4 works to vol-down/up and Fn+Esc works to mute like many have reported.
I have looked for that "BIOS option" some users speak of, and there isn't one for my model. I have installed Fnfxd and fnfx and all that Jazz but no cigar.
Like one user I noticed recently my Fn+F6/F7 keys "work" after a suspend (they show brightness bar and it changes, but no real change to brightness) and i can softblock my WiFi, all after a suspension, but they still do not actually work as designed.
I don't know if there is an answer out there, but if there is I would like to be told or pointed to it.
I really like Ubuntu and would like to use it on a regular basis for everything but gaming, but if i cannot change power consumption options on the fly then Windows will work better for me.
I see alot of posts/threads asking for help, and only a few replies that work for a few people.
All I really need to work is the WiFi, I do a lot of stuff online, and a lot of stuff offline, and if I am traveling I don't want to have to restart my computer to turn off WiFi in the BIOS.
