Ah right, yes, so probabyl sony-laptopt has nothing to do with it.

THen the problem is simply that the acpi events are not coming through
when pressing the respective keys.

But *that* might be part of the sony-laptop kernel module?

TREWOFFE (n.)
A very thick and heavy drift of snow balanced precariously on the
edge of a door porch waiting for what it judges to be the correct
moment to fall. From the ancient Greek legend 'The Treewofe of
Damocles'.
