Unplugging the power cord to my laptop does the same thing as pressing the f7 key.

      Description

      Whenever the power cord is removed from my laptop (an alienware M14X) while playing minecraft version 13w36b, the game acts as if I have pressed the F7 key, which as you know by default causes the mouse tracking to move around a bit slower. Also, on my laptop pressing the fn+F7 key mutes the speakers, and the speakers are also muted when the power cord is removed while playing. When I plug the power cord back in the mouse tracking reverts back to normal, and the speakers are unmuted. Similarly, if F7 has already been pressed and/or the speakers have been muted, unplugging the power cord reverts mouse tracking to normal and unmutes the speakers. If the game window is minimized, plugging/unplugging the power cord has no effect. There is also no effect if I am at the main menu, picking a server or a map, in the options menu, or if I hit ESC while playing to pull up the in-game menu.

      I have just tested this again and discovered that this only mutes the speakers if I have already pushed fn+F7 at some point during my play time within the game, but hitting f7 before unplugging/plugging in the cord is not a requirement to effect the key's in-game function. There is also a slight delay before changes take effect.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Unplug the power cord, either from the wall outlet or the laptop's outlet, or plug it back in.
