Windows 7: Sleep dimmed out

Sleep dimmed out


I have just installed windows 7 on my Asus K70IO notebook. Everything works fine expect two things:

- My 'Fn' buttons don't work anymore
- I can't get the notebook to sleep anymore, because the sleep function is dimmed out.

I suggest it has something to do with the drivers, but I don't know how or what. Can you help me?

1) Download Asus hotkey drivers from the asus support site.
2) Update your graphics card drivers.

How to stop icons of selected shortcuts from being dimmed?
I'm using the Windows Classic theme in Win7 Starter. By default, Windows always dims the desktop icon of a shortcut when it is selected, whether it's a transparent icon or not. Is there a way to prevent this? Highlighting the text of the shortcut is enough of an indication that it has been selected.
