[x130e] Fn key locked after hibernation/sleep

I got a new x130e notebook for school, but whenever it goes into hibernation(or sleep, I don't know the difference), it wakes up with fn key locked.

 

I use vim for programming and it requires extensive use of escape key, which turns into "mute" while fn key is locked, and greatly hinders my ability to use my laptop.

 

I once even pressed f5 to refresh a webpage only to find my wifi misteriously get disabled with no way to turn it back on unless I realized that fn+f5 toggles wifi in a way that cannot be enabled via wifi options of the operating system -- I had to press fn f5 again but I ended up restarting my laptop...

 

I know that this is an old problem but I cannot find any definite authoritative solutions online that I can trust.

 

I heard that a BIOS update could help but I am running Ubuntu MATE operating system, and don't want to take risks removing all my configuration just to install Windows so I update BIOS only to find that it won't fix anything(I want to be sure it'll fix it so I can avoid being disappointed later).

 

Does anyone know a definite solution to this problem?

 

PS: My current BIOS version is 8RET52WW (1.15)

 

Thanks ahead of time!

I am also having this issue. Same computer, too.
