I'm so glad I found your posts!
For the last four hours i have tried to solve a problem i had with the thinkvantage system update.. no matter what update i installed, it never registered that this update was infact installed - so it kept giving me the same things to update.
So I decided to just cut it, and uninstall everything Lenovo related on my t60p.
MUCH trouble later, and Client Security Suite not working at all - It was given the boot. It generates exactly this problem: http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?p=379674&
Which is quite unfortunate considering all Lenovo related software was uninstalled - but traces might still be left in the registry.
So i of course installed the latest hotkey driver too, and no matter what nothing except FN+F3, FN+F5 wanted to appear on-screen.
The driver version you suggested on the other hand works perfectly.
Lenovo really need to look into this. I have always thought the ThinkVantage utilities and Thinkpad utilities were quite a hassle to get to work right, it even started with the FN+F5 problems during the IBM days. When it works, the utilities are extremely nice and feels very fast to use, but there are just too many bugs and pitfalls for some odd reason when installing. I realise it is hard to support common software packages for the number of different Thinkpads that they do - but...
