Bug Description

Binary package hint: acpi-support

I have exactly the same problem as in http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/560551 on my Sony Vaio laptop. Removing /etc/acpi/events/sony* solved the problem. Apparently, those keys are handled by kernel now.

  * drop sony-* event handlers, which are also now superseded by a kernel
    input device; and drop the sound button action scripts, of which the sony
    events were the last users. LP: #676685.
