ACPI_ASUS_WMI(4)					   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 					  ACPI_ASUS_WMI(4)

NAME
acpi_asus_wmi -- Asus Laptop WMI Extras SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device acpi_asus_wmi Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): acpi_asus_wmi_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The acpi_asus_wmi driver provides support for the extra WMI-controlled gadgets, such as hotkeys and leds, found on Asus laptops. It allows one to use the sysctl(8) interface to manipulate the brightness of the LCD panel and keyboard backlight, power on/off different internal com- ponents, such as WiFi, Bluetooth, camera, cardreader, etc, read some sensors. Hotkey events are passed to devd(8) for easy handling in userspace with the default configuration in /etc/devd/asus.conf. Some hotkey events, such as keyboard backlight and touchpad control, are handled inside the driver. SYSCTL VARIABLES
The following sysctls are currently implemented: dev.acpi_asus_wmi.0.handle_keys Specifies whether driver should handle some harwdare keys, such as keyboard backlight, internally. Number of other variables under the same sysctl branch are model-specific. Defaults for these variables can be set in sysctl.conf(5), which is parsed at boot-time. SEE ALSO

NAME
acpi_toshiba -- Toshiba HCI interface SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device acpi_toshiba Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): acpi_toshiba_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
HCI is Toshiba's Hardware Control Interface which is somewhat uniform across their models. The acpi_toshiba driver allows the user to manip- ulate HCI-controlled hardware using a number of sysctl(8) variables. SYSCTL VARIABLES
The following sysctls are currently implemented: hw.acpi.toshiba.force_fan Causes active cooling to be forcibly enabled ('1') or disabled ('0') regardless of the current temperature. hw.acpi.toshiba.video_output Sets the active display to use according to a bitwise OR of the following: 0 No display 1 LCD 2 CRT 4 TV-Out Only some systems (i.e., the Libretto L5) support video switching via this hardware-specific driver. Use the acpi_video(4) driver for generic video output support. hw.acpi.toshiba.lcd_brightness Makes the LCD backlight brighter or dimmer (higher values are brighter). hw.acpi.toshiba.lcd_backlight Turns the LCD backlight on and off. hw.acpi.toshiba.cpu_speed Sets the CPU speed to the specified speed. This provides functionality similar to the hw.acpi.cpu.throttle_state variable. Higher sysctl values mean lower CPU speeds. Defaults for these variables can be set in sysctl.conf(5), which is parsed at boot-time. LOADER TUNABLES
The hw.acpi.toshiba.enable_fn_keys tunable enables or disables the function keys on the keyboard. Function keys are enabled by default. This behaviour can be changed at the loader(8) prompt or in loader.conf(5). SEE ALSO
