    Could be Fn+F5

    Here's from the Launch Manager Help (AOA150 - can't speak to the other models):

    To activate a keyboard hotkey, press and hold the Fn key, then press the other key(s) in the combination.

    Hot Key Function Description
    Fn+F1 Hot key help Displays this help file.
    Fn+F2 System Properties Launch System Properties.
    Fn+F3 Power Options Launch Power Options.
    Fn+F4 Sleep Puts the computer in Sleep mode, which can be defined via the advanced section of the Power Options Properties in the Windows Control Panel.
    Fn+F5 Display toggle Switches display output between the notebook LCD, an external monitor and both the notebook LCD and external monitor.
    Fn+F6 Screen blank Turns the LCD backlight off to save power; press any key to resume.
    Fn+F7 Touchpad on/off Turns the internal touchpad on and off.
    Fn+F8 Speaker on/off Turns the speakers on and off.
