Missing Blue Button and Fn-F5 Functions

2008-06-22, 13:27 PM
Two keyboard functions have mysteriously disappeared from my Z60t. One is the blue ThinkVantage button, which no longer brings up the Productivity Center menu, although the button still functions during startup. The other is the Fn-F5 combination, which should turn the wireless on and off. It no longer does anything, although other Fn- combinations still work. I can still get these functions to work by using a Productivity Center desktop icon.

Is there a Settings area where I can enable these keyboard functions again?

Check Lenovo System Update there is one or more Hotkey-Stuff you need to have installed sothat these functions work under windows next to the utilities iteself (like presentation manager or access connections).

Maybe you disabled windows services to speed up boot or such?
