In both of your cases this looks to be a bug in wmi. I'm not exactly
sure what that stands for but it appears that they are supposed to
help make all the little fancy buttons on laptops work but in your
case cause more problems than they fix. I wonder what logic it uses to
know which driver to load? It's odd that in Pedro's case it loaded the
acer_wmi even though his is a sony...

On my older HP/Compaq 8510w I'm using hp_wmi without issue.
