R40 ibm-acpi module [SOLVED]


How do I get the hotkeys working with the ibm-acpi module. Cant for the life of me get it working. Did the echo enable > /proc/acpi/ibm/hotkey and echo 0xffff > /proc/acpi/ibm/hotkey but it does nothing. Have added the suspend patch to the kernel and recompiled. Added the hibernate script and have a sleep script.conf and hibernate.conf. I can get my thinkpad to slepp with the echo 3 > /proc/acpi sleep command but cant tie it in with the hotkeys. Cant get my screen to blank either. The docs for this ibm-acpi thing could do with a bit more info, or i'm completely stupid, i've tried this a few times and can never seem to get it to work. If youve done it can you include some detailed steps, have googled all over the place and everyone just seems to say, yep added the module and it all works. Dont have the bluetooth and docking and video keys, the only ones that I really want to get working are the sleep hibernate and blank screen keys. ie f3 f4 f12

O.k got the sleep button to work. Cant believe it took me so long. Now onto the screen blank and hibernate. The screen blank key doesnt seem to be triggering an acpid event. Hmm any help here app. Its on the F3 button on this one.
Got to sleep with the lid event too. Still cant get the blank screen button to register an event with acpid. Any ideas.

Nevermind. Got it working. Another case of ignorance on my behalf.
