I have had this laptop for years now so it is probably due to fall apart on me; but if anyone can explain why it does not switch on any more I would be most greatful. We have confirmed that the power adapter and the battery are both functioning - the charging light even comes on when they are connected - but nothing happens when we hit the power button.

You did not state which laptop model you have. Here is a list of the most common key strokes or switches:
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo A Series ---- Button above the keyboard on top right Fujitsu Siemens Amilo D Series ---- Button above the keyboard on top right Fujitsu Siemens Amilo K Series ---- Not Wireless Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L/EL Series ---- Fn / F1 to turn on/off Fujitsu Siemens Amilo La Series ---- Fn / F2 to turn on / off Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li Series ---- Easy launch button (one of 3) on top of keyboard
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
On some of the Amilo Models, the Wi-Fi button is actually a key combination on the keyboard. Have a look for a key with the wireless symbol on it - looks a bit like an antenna, and hold Fn while you press that key. Your Wireless should come back on.
Fujitsu's can be odd, cause the hardware button (mentioned above) doesn't actually disable the driver in Windows, just turns it off so no connections appear.
Go to http://www.fujitsu-siemens.co.uk/support/downloads.html and go through entering your laptop model number etc. When all the downloads for your model are displayed, confusingly Launch Manager is hidden under the title "Panel". It works - I have just rebuilt the hard drive on my Amilo M7400 and could not find Launch Manager to enable the wireless function anywhere else. Good Luck
