Getting special keys to work

I was trying to watch Netflix on a laptop (with Lubuntu) connected to a
TV by S-Video connection. I found out that Fn-F7 was not working to
select the external VGA or S-Video displays.
Subsequently I found that Fn-F4 does not put the laptop to sleep, and
Fn-F5 does not toggle the WiFi radio on/off. (The other common special
keys work OK.)
So I'm trying to get those keys working that way via entries in
With 'xev -event keyboard' I found out that Fn-F7 produces the keysym
'XF86Display' but I still need to know what command to bind that to. So
that's my first question.
Fn-F4 and Fn-F5 does not produce any keysym's, so I'm currently at a
loss for how to proceed next with those.
