    I just installed the windows 8 consumer preview. All is working fine, need some tuning.

    One of the biggest problem (for me) is that function key are not working. Fn+F8 is not working and I don't know how to disable the touchpad: is really annoying, when I use the trackpad the mouse goes all over (I ALWAYS touch the touchpad and is extremely annoying)

    How to disable the touchpad?

    Also Bluetooth and speakers are not working, how to>

    Thank you

    You need to download and install device drivers and utilities specific to X220T (and compatible with Windows 8).

    I haven't tried the bluetooth or audio drivers but the speakers worked from the start for me. I installed the trackpad/trackpoint drivers and software and that allowed me to disable the touchpad, but I haven't tried to install the other thinkpad software so I had to turn it off manually in Devices.

    Speakers work fine, was my mistake.
    Touchpad I solved disabling it in Bios. (Where is the touchpad in Devices??)

    Bluetooth is still not working

    ALso Tablet buttons are still not working

    These all require the windows 7 lenovo drivers to function. Touchpad is in devices when you install the thinkpad trackpad&touchpad software that I can't remember the name of, but it adds another tab under Mouse in devices.

    Hm. Wonder if there's something else it needs then.

    I have not tried installing it myself yet.

    ^^^ Turn Bluetooth on. Usually, Fn+F5 brings up the window for turning on/off WiFi and BT. As soon as BT is turned on for the first time, Windows might be smart enough to install its driver automatically. Otherwise, you know what to do.

    In msconfig, under Startup tab, make sure ThinkPad Power Manager is present and enabled. Under Services tab, make sure ThinkPad PM Service is present and running. Without this, hotkeys (such as Fn+F5) and onscreen displays (such as brightness bar) do not work.

    When you use System Update to download Power Manager, it pulls in a bunch of "related" things, such as hotkey handling. Don't ask me why.
