Function keys

Suspend-, Brightness- and Audiokeys work. Others may need special configuration.

Suspendkey was executing the suspend from KDE and from the acpi Interface. Disabling the KDE event made the Suspend work.

Power management

Suspend

Touchscreen is not working afterwards.

It will work after you reload hid_multitouch kernel module:

# rmmod hid_multitouch
# modprobe hid_multitouch

As a workaround, you can add the following line to the file '/etc/pm/config.d/modules':

SUSPEND_MODULES="hid_multitouch"

This way the kernel module will be explicitly unloaded before suspend.

If you are using twofing you also need to restart it:

$ killall twofing
$ twofing --wait

This instruction may be useful for solving this problem

Hibernate

Not Working.

Brightness

Reason: Mentions rc.local, needs updated to systemd (Discuss in Talk:ASUS Eee PC T101MT)

With some Eee PC's, the brightness setting are either too low, or are sometimes a little inconstant or arbitrary (cycling high/low/completely off). If you have issues with this, issue this command to fix it:

And regenerate the grub2 file:

# setpci -s 00:02.0 f4.b=80

The 80 represents the highest brightness level in hexadecimal, which can be replaced with up to FF if desired. 80 is about half, being approximately the same brightness range as windows or grub.

This is not permanent, so it can be added to rc.local:

/etc/rc.d/rc.local
#!/bin/sh

...

setpci -s 00:02.0 f4.b=80
