It seems like it freezes all output for a split second, but what is actually its purpose? Or is it really intended to freeze output for a very short amount of time? No other key combination appears to have this effect.
I'm using GNOME, btw.

Hello Nathan,

fn + x is used by some manufacturers for access to diagnostics during the boot process.

You could check the bios for info on fn + x for manufacturers settings and check gnome-keybinding-properties for SL settings

Ha, unbelievable, I stumble upon a thread I posted myself, looking for an answer to the exact same question I was apparently wondering about over a year ago.
