The only problem is that wifi led is always on. Everything works like a charm with modern kernels.

Just a supplementary information on using a more recent kernel: 3.8. I have installed xubuntu 13.04 and all acpi-like problems we had with the 3.2 kernel are a thing of the past. All functions we use work perfectly well, suspend, close-the-lid, the blue function-buttons, everything. I can really recommend this netbook

How about Fn+F2 to turn off wireless card? In my 1225b is not working and i need this.
Also Fn+F8 (toggle touchpad) work, other Fn keys are ok.

I want just to supplement my last entry with some info about a 3.8 kernel. I have installed xubuntu 13.04, and all the acpi-kind of problems are a thing of the past.
Suspend, the blue Fn-button functions, every thing works, now really like a charm. And this even without fiddling. Great. I can recommend this netbook.

every discribed bug is still avaiable in ubuntu 12.10!
Its stupid, i bought this laptop and i thought the asus laptops should have a good linux compatibility. - wrong, this eeepc works only with the windows 7 COMPLETELY fine.
The biggest failure in my opinion is the acpi problem.
Ok, you can solve it temporarely with adding some commands in different files an the laptop shuts down correctly. But don't forget, you have to use the standby mode only in case of disconnected power supply. If you connect the laptop to power then he will go to sleep mode but dont wake up from there…
Its hopeless to use ubuntu on this type of laptop..

This bug should be sorted in 12.10, not sure if older kernels will get fixed.

Andre, 2012/10/29 13:04

We run this net-book with Linux Mint Debian Edition with Xfce, kernel 3.2 64bit. It works like a charm - almost everything.
The only disappointment: the ACPI functions work badly. There is some mighty fiddling required to get at least the “Suspend” function to work partially. Research on the Internet is required. Forget about “Hibernate”. Some of the blue special keys are not working as well, but that's not too important.

The general impression, however, is very good.
