Package: eeepc-acpi-scripts
Version: 1.0.4
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

I've never seen my wireless key working.
The led shuts off right after being lighten up.

So, I investigate.

Here's what I found:

1) There's only one key
   So, one code to handle by /etc/acpi/actions/hotkey.sh.
   /etc/acpi/actions/wireless.sh must be a toggle script.
2) The wifi hardware and led are enabled by hardware (like the brightness)
   With the "echo 1 > /proc/acpi/asus/wlan", I saw my wifi led disabled one or 
two seconds after having been light up.
   I simply remove them.

My patch is attached.
