    F9 & F10 keys are said to be shorcuts but they do not work as they are sound up/down...what did i miss?

    On other machines, they are Exposé shortcuts, but not on the MBP, you can set Exposé shortcuts in System Preferences->Keyboard and Mouse :)

    what keyboard are you using? in the keyboard & mouse settings, there's a check box to use F-keys as standard function keys. this box needs to be unchecked for the special features (like volume up/down) to work. alternatively, pressing the f9/f10 with the "fn" key (if you have one) should produce the desired effect you're looking for without having to check the box in the keyboard prefs.
