    Maybe you should check for Linux drivers on the manufacturers website, go to www.google.com and search for redhat9 "keyboard name" driver download.

    You need to look into binding keys and acpi.

    I really wouldn't bother I always turn of all power saving, sleep and stuff as I have only found that it can cause problems. I believe that the less you have running in the background, the better, so I don't even bother with screensavers..............all stuff that can become corrupted or contend with something later on?

    It sounds as if you have a "generic" windows keyboard, so your chances of a working driver are not so good, unless it is a perfect copy of a Microsoft one?

    Most people don't really care about the keyboard, unless they are using one for 6 or more hours per day? your chair and mouse are probably more "personal" items when it comes to comfort and good working practice. Just get a good wrist rest...for your mouse pad as well

    Older people (secretarial types) seem to prefer a harder, traditional shaped, keyboard, probably because they are used to the old electric typewriters that required a more positive keystroke? Younger sorts seem to like a lighter one, with a more ergonomic shape.......they are more used to using function keys and the numeric keypad, so they tend to have a "broader perception"?

    Good luck
