However, I can tell by monitoring the CPU speed in Task Manager / Performance tab, that turbo is active. Now if I can just get my Galaxy S3 to quit deactivating Win8 I'll be set.

    Wish I knew how the phone is deactivating Windows 8. There is another thread on it here but guess no one has a fix yet. On another site, a Microsoft "Support Engineer" recommends the following:
    1) Upgrade your chipset driver and then try connecting to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Phone.
    2) Try by scanning your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Phone With windows defender.
    Please post back if you have any questions. I will be glad to provide you with the additional options available that you can utilize to get the issue resolved.

    1 - I have the latest chipset drivers from Intel.
    2 - You can't scan your phone with Windows Defender. (why would you anyway?)
    3 - Despite many others continuing to post with this problem.. the "Support Engineer" has not returned.

    Sorry to get off this thread's topic.

    M$ support, nah I wont bet on it
    So did you try to get the galaxy hooked to win 8 while offline? does the same happens?
    Win 8 has to hit the server to get activated, or the galaxy alters something in spp folder or triggers deactivation somehow. Sorry, I do not have a Galaxy so I cant test anything however I can bounce ideas and do some research.
    I have one HTC PRO 2 windows 6.5 phone and couple iphones, however all working ok.
    Does win8 deactivate immediately or you perform some action before?

    good luck

    lilbudro, what is this offtopic? We are talking here about ASUS notebooks and Fn keys. Not about Samsung Galaxy!

    Hi All,

    Did anybody find a solution? I tried every atk package, the latest was v1.0.0027, but that still doesn't work at all.
    When atkpackage is installed, then volume keys work, brightness keys don't. When uninstalled, it's the opposite.
    I have an ASUS K53SV as well.

    Thank you!

    make sure your graphic card drivers are up to date as well. Both of my Asus's brightness, volume, wireless and volume function work ok.

    Thank you HBHB, but my drivers are the newest.
    Do you have the same model? K53SV?
