How can I send function + F5 (Fn + F5) hotkey to change brightness?

Unfortunately, most laptops have drivers which capture the keystrokes directly and don't listen for them to be synthesized.

For example, I created a program which did nothing but send the Fn+HOME (my brightness increase combination), the message came through in Spy++, but nothing changed about my brightness.

The best way is to use S+ to call NirCmd utilizing the changebrightness function.
