    I received following inconvenience. I use netbook Asus Eee PC 1015BX. Once Linux Mint 13 stood at netbook. I now installed Linux Mint 17. In version 17 i can`t turn on/off the power on Wi-Fi with keys "Fn+WiFi". If turn on power Wi-Fi in BIOS, Wi-Fi is working. Keys "Fn+WiFi" turns on/off wireless link only, that do not saves battery power.
    I installed Fedora 20 and Mageia 4.1 also. They have the same problem. In older Linux distributions it worked.
    How to solve it?

    Am sorry for my fine english :(

    One thing to try would be to reset the keyboard-configuration:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
    Another would be to look at the Language support and make sure that everything is correct. There should be a setting called Keyboard Input Method System that you may want to look at.

    Are you still able to turn off the wifi with the network manager?

    The network manager turns on/off wireless link only.
