I need a list of all the Fn + F commands. Where can I go to get it?
Download the Hardware Maintainance Manual for your system from this site, but make sure you get the right one. You can then find all the function key combinations listed in the Product Overview section.
Here is an example from a common ThinkPad model
Key combination Description Fn+F1 Reserved. Fn+F2 Lock the computer. Fn+F3 Select a power plan (in Windows XP, power scheme) that has been created by Power Manager, or adjust the power level by using the slider control. When you press this combination, a panel for selecting a power plan (power scheme) appears. Notes: 1. To use the Fn+F3 key combination, you must have the ThinkPad PM device driver installed on the computer. 2. If you have logged on with an administrator user ID, and you press Fn+F3, the panel for selecting a power plan (power scheme) appears. If you have logged on with another user ID, and you press Fn+F3, the panel does not appear. 3. You cannot turn off the computer display by pressing Fn+F3.
Fn+F4 Put the computer in sleep (standby) mode. To return to normal operation, press the Fn key only, without pressing a function key. Notes: 1. To use the Fn+F4 key combination, you must have the ThinkPad Power manager device driver installed on the computer. 2. If you want to use the combination to put the computer into hibernation mode or do-nothing mode (in Windows XP, shut the computer down or show the panel for turning off the computer), change the settings in the Power Manager.
