Bluetooth

Bluetooth Drivers for Win7 do not work (g4wb12ww.exe) Install Drivers for Win8 (g4we14ww.exe). Compatibility mode not necessary (?)

Hotkeys etc.

Clean Uninstall:

  • Remove "On Screen Keyboard"
  • Remove "System Interface Driver"
  • In Device Manager, remove "Lenovo HID Mini-driver for Hardware Radio Switch"

gevu60ww.exe works better for me and has Flightmode feature built-in. Does not seem to have (need?) "System Interface Driver"

Install gevu60ww.exe. Do not install driver from this file. Run c:\DRIVERS\HOTKEY\SETUP.exe in Win7 Compatibility mode. If not logged in as admin, make sure you change compatibility mode for all users.

Then Fn+F5 should work + HW switch. BT is by default always on. Create a shortcut in Startup folder with:

"C:\Program Files\Lenovo\HOTKEY\TpFnF5.exe" /BTOFF

Attention: When the Desktop has the focus while pressing Fn+F5, it is overwritten by Windows and the device toggle flight mode instead! Make sure that a different application has focus while pressing Fn+F5!

Wireless Hardware Switch

Nothing needed. Leaves "Unknown Device" (DEV_0078) in Device Manager. If you install "Lenovo HID HW Radio Driver for Windows 8 (32-bit , 64-bit) - ThinkPad" http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS032422 (g1hd55ww.exe), flight mode will toggle in addition to the Lenovo Tool messages!

If you do not want this, either don't install the driver or disable the "HID-compliant device" which has DEV_0078 as parent. I don't know if this has an impact on power consumption etc.
