Hi,

there is the one I wrote :

Note: You need radeontools, ibm-acpi (in kernel), hibernate-script and acpid running


Thanks for the scripts and all, but they don't work for me.

When I invoke Fn-F3 the screen blanks out for a second and immediately comes back on. Same with FnF4 (sleep), same with toggling wireless radio (FnF5)... turns things off for a second and right back on.

..... and the quest to get these buttons working continues. ....

Well I got things working now. Lots of digging and googling I found a set of scripts with beep feedback --> here, set it all up and BLAM! ... all the buttons work well now.

My install notes for getting the thinkpad buttons working are in this post:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-450062.html

The only thing that still doesn't work is the "lid" action. I've yet to find a suitable script that will allow my system to re-awaken without getting all messed up or without having to reboot.
