Reprogram acer travelmate front launch key

Hello,

I would like turn one of the frontal launch buttons of my Acer TravelMate 4000 into the on/off switch.
The laptop has 2 frontal hotkeys/launch buttons. One of them isfor enableing the Wlan. The other is for enabeling bluetooth. My laptop does not have bluetooth, and so I would like to make this button the new on/of switch. I am using windows Xp and Is this possible?

You might wonder WHY the does he want this? well:
I am turning my acer travelmat 4000 into a multimediahub for my TV. where I want to place my laptop under my DVD player. In doing so however it is not possible anymore to use the on switch which is located under the folded down monitor.

If you have alternative options, I am open to suggestions (is it for example a possibility to use the infrred port on the front?)

Thank you very much!

Sven.

How to download function key driver acer travelmate 4740


http://www.acer.co.uk/ac/en/GB/content/drivers

Search by product model, just type 4740, choose Travelmate 4740

A list of drivers should come up, make sure you have the right version of windows selected, then click the applications tab.

Try the launch manager. I'm suprised as Acer usually don't need drivers for their fn keys

Anyway let me know how it goes

If this will still not turn the switch on, try to go to the network connection / network and sharing center. right click on wirless network connection and click diagnose,
then it will prompt you to turn on the switch. Just click on "turn switch on" then windows will ne the one who will on the wireless switch.
