Lenovo Z580 Does WiFi software keyboard switch requires Windows 8 to turn on the wireless pci card? I installed Linux Debian V7 and Linlap reports the WiFi 100% but can't turn it on with Fn + F5 key and it
shows enabled in bios. I can only connect with wired connection? Lenovo support say's they can fix it for 89.00 I don't understand why I would have to pay just to turn on Wifi? Does anyone have a solution?

Purchased the Lenovo Z580 on 3/24/2013 this year. It is a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 2.5GHz 15.6” Laptop. Features include an Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, 15.6”
1366×768 widescreen LCD, 6GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless,
Bluetooth, webcam, 6-cell battery, and Windows 8 preloaded.

I need to be able to run Linux.

As of kernel 3.2.0-36 for AMD64, there is a serious ACPI issue that causes excessively long boot times (on the order of 10-15 minutes). Booting with ACPI=Off fixes the issue but disables hyperthreading. In my experience, booting kernel 3.2.0-32 or previous works *fine*; it is definitely a problem with the current linux kernels.

I have found several discussions on various sites about this, but have not seen much concern in the community to fixing the issue, which is a great pity.
