I am using Ubuntu 12.04,

Is there any way to access network manager menu at top panel(indicators area) without mouse ? may be like we access menu of application by Alt - it will be very convenient.

Is there any way access other indicator's functions (sub-menu items of notification,volume,...) in top menu without mouse?

Give you access to the first panel menu then you can use your left and right keys arrow keys to get to others menus. To navigate menu items you use down and up. To select you hit enter.
