acpi_toshiba - Toshiba HCI interface
.Cd "device acpi_toshiba"
HCI is Toshibas "Hardware Control Interface" which is somewhat uniform across their models. The acpi_toshiba driver allows the user to manipulate HCI-controlled hardware using a number of sysctl(8) variables.
The following sysctls are currently implemented:
| hw.acpi.toshiba.force_fan |
| || Causes active cooling to be forcibly enabled (1) or disabled (0) regardless of the current temperature. |
| hw.acpi.toshiba.video_output |
| || Sets the active display to use according to a bitwise OR of the following: |
| 0 || No display |
| 1 || LCD |
| 2 || CRT |
| 4 || TV-Out |
Only some systems (i.e., the Libretto L5) support video switching via this hardware-specific driver. Use the acpi_video(4) driver for generic video output support.
| hw.acpi.toshiba.lcd_brightness |
| || Makes the LCD backlight brighter or dimmer (higher values are brighter). |
| hw.acpi.toshiba.lcd_backlight |
| || Turns the LCD backlight on and off. |
| hw.acpi.toshiba.cpu_speed |
| || Sets the CPU speed to the specified speed. This provides functionality similar to the hw.acpi.cpu.throttle_state variable. Higher sysctl values mean lower CPU speeds. |
Defaults for these variables can be set in sysctl.conf(5), which is parsed at boot-time.
The hw.acpi.toshiba.enable_fn_keys tunable enables or disables the function keys on the keyboard. Function keys are enabled by default.
This behaviour can be changed at the loader(8) prompt or in loader.conf(5).
