This applies to both our T430's and our X230's on Windows 7 x86 SP1
We've downloaded all of the latest drivers from the Lenovo site (after realising that the Update Tool doesn't bring down everything up to date).
The OEM image out of the box works fine, pressing Fn+F3,F4, etc. performs the corresponding actions such as locking the screen, launching wifi, etc. But, when we apply a blank Windows image and install the drivers ourselves, not all of the hotkeys work.
The hotkeys that work are F4 (sleep), F7 (screen select), F8 & F9 (brightness) and F10, F11 & F12 (media keys)
The hotkeys that don't work are F3 (lock screen), F5 (wifi), F6 (communications) and the small hotkey button next to the mute button (in the OEM image, that launches the Lenovo control panel).
I've looked around the forums and come up with this install order, which still doesn't seem to work:
Graphics Drivers (Intel & Nvdidia)
Any help would be appreciated!

I'm happy to report that the above almost works... the Fn+F6 combination for Comms Utility works, albeit after a long wait of about 30 seconds or so. But, the Fn+F4 (sleep) no longer works.
