== Description ==
Our university got a deal with Toshiba for supplying the laptop acquisition program at my faculty. While they are supplying the faculty with standard models, they have made some customizations for matching specific requirements for the students (better CPU, LCD with an higher resolution, etc).

While the Tecra S1 is supported by the latest omnibook driver, it doesn't seem to detect my specific model. I have loaded the driver with ectype=13.

Here is a small report on what is working :
* Hotkeys: some are working (sound on/off, brightness); others are registered by atkbd, just unhandled.
* LCD blanking: not supported
* Battery status: not supported; handled by ACPI
* Fan: not supported
* Touchpad control: not supported (it should, though)
* AC adapter: not supported
* External display: OK
* LCD backlight: OK
* Wifi: OK
* Bluetooth: don't have
* Dock: don't have
* Cooling/throttling: not supported

    Hello,
    Known Tecra S1 have "TECRA S1" as their product name string you have "Tecra S1", that's why your are not detected, I will push a fix in the trunk.

    From your report:
    * Hotkeys: OK scancodes handling is a userpace stuff and left as the user discretion
    * Battery status: OK ACPI should do that fine
    * Touchpad control: NO we don't support touchpad for ectype 13.
    * AC adapter: Ok ACPI should do that fine
    * Cooling/throttling: ACK, hope to fix that soon
