Re: make the FN key on the hp mini netbook stick?

Kevin, try this. You may need some sighted help to do this, but you'll only have to do it once.

1.. Press the power button to turn on the computer.
2.. Press the f10 key to open the BIOS setup window.
3.. Use the right-arrow or left-arrow keys to navigate to the System Configuration option.

4.. Use the up-arrow or down-arrow keys to navigate to the Action Keys Mode option, and then press the enter key to display the Enable / Disable menu.
5.. Select the desired mode:
a.. Disabled : Requires pressing fn key + f1 through f12 to use the action as indicated on the action key.
For example, if Disabled , pressing fn + f11 will mute the sound as indicated on the key on this model PC. Alternatively, pressing f11 only will minimize and maximize a web browser if open.
The action keys may vary depending on the model of notebook.
b.. Enabled : Requires pressing only f1 through f12 to use the action as indicated on the action keys.
For example, if Enabled , pressing f11 only will mute the sound as indicated on the key on this model PC. Alternatively, pressing fn + f11 will minimize and maximize a web browser if open.
The action keys may vary depending on the model of notebook.
6.. Press f10 key to save the selection and restart the computer.
The function key (fn) option can be reset at any time.

I doubt it, unless you enable the sticky keys feature in the accessibility
page, then carefully use that key sequence on Fn. However no guarantee that
sticky keys will work with Fn.
