!! Lenovo M490s function keys and hibernate problem!!!

Hi everybody!

 

I've bought Lenovo M490s notebook one week ago without OS. I've installed Windows 7 Professional x64 retail.

First of all I could not find software that controls Function keys. After installing every driver and software from support page (M490s) my function keys just doesnt work except Fn+F1 sleep, Fn+F2 turn off the screen, Fn+F6 disable touchpad and play buttons. Also no information was displaying on the screen after pressing such buttons - no volume and brightness level.

 

After doing some research I've found and installed Hotkey Features Integration from Lenovo M490 (without S) support page. Every function key is started to work, information on the screen also begin to display (volume and brightness level).

 

Now I spotted a huge problem, after 3 or 4 hibernation volume and brightness keys (fn+up,down,left,right) just stopping to work!!! Fn+F1-F12 combinations are working normal. Then after reboot brightness and volume keys are working again!!


Please help me to solve this problem, I cant live without hibernation!

 

Thanks!!!

THE ISSUE IS SOLVED! Problem was in BIOS!

 

I've loaded setup defaults and everything is great from now.

Additionally I excluded everything from boot order except my SSD.

 

Brand new laptop from store had this bug.

Always update to the latest version of bios (1.04 present time) and use the latest version of lenovo hotkeys. Type in google "lenovo hotkeys windows 8.1" to get the latest version. Dont worry if the m490s is not listed, it works.

Hi, @siltdotstrider. I got the actualy the same trouble as You. The difference is that I can't get FN keys work on Windows 10. (FN+F5 (wifi), FN+F6 (touchpad), FN+ESC (camera)).

 

I've installed:

Lenovo Power Management Driver  1.67.12.16 - http://support.lenovo.com/ru/ru/downloads/migr-4gxpeg

 

Hotkey Features 8.80.22 - http://support.lenovo.com/ru/ru/downloads/ds031814

 

also tried

 

Hotkey Features 8.80.14 - http://support.lenovo.com/ru/ru/downloads/ds029026

 

But still can't make it work.

 

P.S Please help if You have any solution. Thanks.
