As gbonvehi said, I would think it is the WM that has some
keys binding for ctrl-alt+ F1-F6, although I find it curious

Also, it is a laptop so maybe he can't get the F1-F6 keys
directly, maybe that require a keys sequence, and again
this would be something with X or WM settings
Just noticed that, and modified my post. Not sure why I missed it though.

I have to use ctrl-alt-spacebar-F1 F2 etc to cycle through

*Edit* Nevermind it does work with just ctrl-alt
