ACPI_TOSHIBA(4)		 BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual	       ACPI_TOSHIBA(4)

NAME
     acpi_toshiba -- Toshiba HCI interface

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

	   device acpi_toshiba

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

	   acpi_toshiba_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     HCI is Toshiba's Hardware Control Interface which is somewhat uniform
     across their models.  The acpi_toshiba driver allows the user to manipu-
     late HCI-controlled hardware using	a number of sysctl(8) variables.

SYSCTL VARIABLES
     The following sysctls are currently implemented:

     hw.acpi.toshiba.force_fan
	     Causes active cooling to be forcibly enabled (`1')	or disabled
	     (`0') regardless of the current temperature.

     hw.acpi.toshiba.video_output
	     Sets the active display to	use according to a bitwise OR of the
	     following:

	     0	     No	display
	     1	     LCD
	     2	     CRT
	     4	     TV-Out

	     Only some systems (i.e., the Libretto L5) support video switching
	     via this hardware-specific	driver.	 Use the acpi_video(4) driver
	     for generic video output support.

     hw.acpi.toshiba.lcd_brightness
	     Makes the LCD backlight brighter or dimmer	(higher	values are
	     brighter).

     hw.acpi.toshiba.lcd_backlight
	     Turns the LCD backlight on	and off.

     hw.acpi.toshiba.cpu_speed
	     Sets the CPU speed	to the specified speed.	 This provides func-
	     tionality similar to the hw.acpi.cpu.throttle_state variable.
	     Higher sysctl values mean lower CPU speeds.

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

LOADER TUNABLES
     The hw.acpi.toshiba.enable_fn_keys	tunable	enables	or disables the	func-
     tion keys on the keyboard.	 Function keys are enabled by default.

     This behaviour can	be changed at the loader(8) prompt or in
     loader.conf(5).
