[Bug 1220577] [NEW] [HP Pavilion 15 Sleekbook] wireless hotkey function loss on 12.04.3 but works on 12.04.2


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

CID 201209-11789

Hardware: HP Pavilion 15 Sleekbook
image: 12.04.3

Step to reproduce the bug:
1. boot into the system
2. connect to wireless AP (if any) via the indicator on Desktop (upper-right hand side)
3. if connected, make sure we could surf on internet
4. press the wireless hotkey, in this case, it is F12

Expected result:
1. the wireless will lose connection
2. no AP on the scanning list of the wireless desktop indicator
3. wireless LED will change color (from white to orange)

Actual result:
nothing happened

More information may help:
1. "rfkill list" shows the soft block was still "no" after the wireless hotkey is pressed
2. "sudo showkey -k" has no response when the wireless hotkey is pressed
3. 12.04.2 will not have this bug on the same machine
