Hotkey Fn/F5 -- Turn On/Off Wireless Radios -- No Longer Works

I just noticed that this hotkey combination has ceased working .  I don't use it that often, so I'm not sure how long this has been the case.  Other Fn/hotkeys are still functioning properly.  My W530 is running Windows 7 SP1 64bit, and both the Lenovo and the Windows Updates are current.

 

I did search out the following post:

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-11e-Windows-13-E-and/Hotkey-f9-wireless-radio-control-don-t-wo...

but I'm not sure it applies to my case.  In particular, I don't want to re-install the "Lenovo Communications Utility" because I use the Windows function for connecting to Wi-Fi, and I recall that one of the related Lenovo overlays screwed that up to my detriment in the past.  (Generally I stay away from most of the Lenovo bloatware, but some, like the Fn/F5 feature, is very useful.) -- JCW2

Did you update the power management driver?  If yes you need to roll back the power management driver.  See below.  Its affecting other people too.  Seems to affect Fn keys and OSD.
