If suspend worked, then this is probably down the kernel bug that steals
unmapped keypresses.

Could you double-check this under Microsoft Windows?  Most of the bluetooth
keys 'unplug' the internal USB-connected bluetooth dongle and this is done
in hardware.

What exactly does/should this do?  Pop up a battery status window?

Please file this against 'hotkey-setup' with 'dmidecode' output and
'setkeycodes'/'xev' output for that key combination.

Do these work in Ubuntu, if so, the kubuntu mixer needs to learn to handle
them (they mapped to standard keycodes);  if not then they also need filing
against 'hotkey-setup'.

This is an X issue;  file against 'xorg-driver-input-*'.

Wiki are supposed to be collaborative and wording like that just serves to
block progress;  I'd be happy to see that line deleted and replaced with a
message that the original author is not contactable.

I do too :)  Probably 25% at a guess.

Britain is just cold, in a pesky way.  London, GB
