Aha, thanks for your explanation. I use the native kernel drivers and
not the separate package eeepc-acpi-modules-2.6-686 (which is supposed
to leave the debian sources soon, iirc). So there is no bluetooth
support on my 2.6.26-1-system yet.

Ah, interesting. In my german manual was only written, that it lights
up, when the integrated WLAN is active.
