Thanks for the reply =)
Well my fn keys are different from what you described. F7 and F8 are the backlight brightness down/up and F11/F12 is last/next song in a media player.
I really wish it could be controlled by the bios.. but its not t.t
It doesnt work here in linux as well as in Windows 2000 or XP. Only in Vista and I suspect thats because of some driver.
Tested with nvidia-settings (there is no slider to control backlight) as well as in Gnome-power-manager.
there is no /proc/acpi/backlight as well as anything about video or gpu.
Well I think I'll have to get used to it t.t
