    Indeed, my Satellite X205-9800 uses that method, however, it only provides
    HCI call 0x001E (Hotkey Events) and no System Event FIFO (0x0016),
    instead, hotkeys are entered on a variable called TOHK (TOshiba HotKeys?).
    Located in my model in

    PCI0.LPCB.EC0.TOHK

    and it appears that it can be _polled_ tru' method INFO
    (TOSH_INTERFACE_2 ".INFO"),
    perhaps a small change in the polling to reflect to that method for
    TOS1900 devices would be necessary.


    On my model the complete call would be:

    \\_SB.VALZ.SPFC
    \\_SB.VALZ.INFO

    Is it different from \\_SB_.VALZ.SPFC or it simply doesn't matter?

    Saludos
    Azael
