Hello Marco

I did a clean install on my ThinkPad T43p, too. The following keyboard
driver has been installed automatically:

Standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard v6.0.5384.4

IBM hotkeys for volume control and mute as well as the "Access IBM" button
are not functional but some of the Fn-key combinations are working properly.
When pressing Fn+F5 the built-in bluetooth device was activated and
recognized by Vista. Windows installed a driver and now it's functional.
May be this will solve your bluetooth-problem, too.

As far as the non-functional keys are concerned I think we will have to wait
until Lenovo releases Vista-compatible drivers and ThinkPad utilities.
