Hi Leon90 ,
Welcome to the forums,
After reading this, the first thing that came in my mind, is that your keyboard might need replacement, but lets isolate a few things
1. Try reinstalling your Power manager.

for some reason it works again.. after formatting to win8.1 some day ago i didnt change much just installed drivers etc. nw FN key functions again and arrow key randomly works too.. @@" i guess i just have a faulty keyboard now, all keys work fine right now

Tell me about it! I too have lost the exact same keys, only I didn't lose them from any software installations. I have lost *exactly* the arrow up, arrow left, and Fn key and it is really annoying. I'm going to try cleaning my keyboard and see what happens from there.
I have the G580 laptop running Win 8.

Hey mate the keys are faulty nothing can fix it except for buying a new Replacement! , i fixed the problem simply by Replacing the KEYBOARD ! i went downtown and looked for a g580 keyboard and they didnt exactly have the same version g580 they had c or b580 i dont remmber what letter it was sorry ! but the thing is the whole keyboard layout of many Lenovo Laptops are the same just look one thats the same, cause mine wasnt for G580 but the thing is its still working perfectly ! only problem is the Screws didnt fit i had to cut out the sides of the screw hole thingies to make the keyboard fit in well in my G580 , Simply put all you need is a new keyboard replacement buy one they cost between 20-40$ worth it cause you wont have any faulty keys anymore evrything will work fine. no need to reinstall anything just replace it with new Keyboard. and Plus its easy to replace it by yourself. i replaced mine by myself easily. Problem fixed.
