    Hi,

    I've updated the boot camp drivers with Leopard but the monitor controls still don't work when booted into XP - ie brightness and switching monitor on/off.

    I'm using a Microsoft keyboard if that's relevant.

    Any ideas what to do?

    Try it with an Apple keyboard. I am pretty sure third party keyboards aren't pre-mapped to use the proper commands, because even on the mac side, if you want to use the new alu keyboard, you have to install the keyboard update.
