Buttons that are supposed to work…

Okay. In playing with this laptop some more, I'm trying to fix the suspend and hibernate keyboard buttons. Suspend is activated using Fn+F4 and hibernate Fn+F12. Or at least that's what they are meant to do.

I'm getting the following in my dmesg:

Suspend:
atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0×97 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e017 <keycode>' to make it known.
atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0×97 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e017 <keycode>' to make it known.

Hibernate:
atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0×98 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e018 <keycode>' to make it known.
atkbd.c: Unknown key released (translated set 2, code 0×98 on isa0060/serio0).
atkbd.c: Use 'setkeycodes e018 <keycode>' to make it known.

Now, I know I could hack up something involving rc.local and setkeycodes but what's the real way to fix this so it works out of the box for people? This is on Fedora Core Rawhide. Either post a comment or email me at richard_at_hughsie_dot_com please.

Thanks.

    Funny enough, I am getting similar messages trying to turn WiFi radio on on my laptop – there is a button for it. I have to boot into MSWin in order to enable WiFi (for some reason WiFi is disabled when laptops dies because of end-of-battery).
