Thanks a lot for the solution!

 

And here I thought I didn't need the app. Well, apparently it's needed for some function keys to work. Also nice to have as it shows an overlay to indiciate the state of a function (eg. Disable touchpad) when it does not provide any noticable signs of change on screen.

Re:Airplane mode key (F7 key) not working

Few days ago on my laptop (Lenovo G500) water fallen and now my airplane button not working and it's disable/off by me before the key damaged by water and now I'm trying to turn on the airplane mode but i can't because it was control by a software called Lenovo Energy Management . I tried to disable and enable from Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center (Change adapter settings) and also from windows mobility center but didn't work(option is greyed out on windows mobility center). My external keyboard don't have airplane key on it and i thought others also don't. I also uninstall and the Lenovo Energy Management but wouldn't work and reset all windows settings and reinstall windows didn't work. Any other way to turn on the airplane mode please help.
