ACPI_ASUS_WMI(4)	 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual	      ACPI_ASUS_WMI(4)

NAME
     acpi_asus_wmi -- Asus Laptop WMI Extras

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device acpi_asus_wmi

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   acpi_asus_wmi_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The acpi_asus_wmi driver provides support for the extra WMI-controlled
     gadgets, such as hotkeys and leds,	found on Asus laptops.	It allows one
     to	use the	sysctl(8) interface to manipulate the brightness of the	LCD
     panel and keyboard	backlight, power on/off	different internal components,
     such as WiFi, Bluetooth, camera, cardreader, etc, read some sensors.
     Hotkey events are passed to devd(8) for easy handling in userspace	with
     the default configuration in /etc/devd/asus.conf.	Some hotkey events,
     such as keyboard backlight	and touchpad control, are handled inside the
     driver.

SYSCTL VARIABLES
     The following sysctls are currently implemented:

     dev.acpi_asus_wmi.0.handle_keys
	     Specifies whether driver should handle some harwdare keys,	such
	     as	keyboard backlight, internally.

     Number of other variables under the same sysctl branch are	model-spe-
     cific.

     Defaults for these	variables can be set in	sysctl.conf(5),	which is
     parsed at boot-time.
