Can you enable the KVM functions?
 Part of the problem with laptops is that there is a thing on them
called an Embedded Controller, EC for short. Those devices do all of
the housekeeping chores that the main system has delegated to them.
For example certain functions are on it.

To that end most laptops aren't supported because these devices are
proprietary in their designs and the programing of them.
