Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga S1 12 (2015) - disable keyboad beep

So, nearly all of the code shown below is from the official arch linux wiki or the official arch linux forum.
I've no idea how this book is doing under windows since I have a strict no-closed-source-operation-system-policy. Under arch linux, it is working. The "FN"-Keys are not working so far. The touchpad is working, the trackpad-key's (the feature of the 2015 edition) as well as the Touchscreen. What really grinds my nuts (beside this doomed intel secure boot/guard shit) was the "keeboard beep" everywhere.
Search for "disable pc speaker" and be happy - or follow the code below or the updated one behind link.

So far, what do i like?
It is fast, quite and feels really good. The keyboard layout differs from my old thinkpad keyboard, so especially for the left hand, I'm always one key to far. I really can't get the point to not have an led for the "caps lock" key - this sucks.
Touchscreen rotation is currently not working and since it is also not working for older devices (2014), I don't assume it will work ever. Full HD is great of course. My old HP Elitebook was native 12 inche and this Yoga is a monster in size compared to the hp. 12.5 inch? - in your dreams mister advertisment!
Really bad is the current backlight situation. I clearly can see bright areas on the top right as well as on the bottom left. Thats why I shift it with an other one. Take care of the prices! You can't get one without this sucking windows, but you pay less for a windows 8 instead of a windows 8.1.
It is really sad that the marked is not producing a 12 inch pointstick notebook with a full hd display (and 16 GB of memory). Fuck this ultrabook-sickness, I don't care it it is a bit wider if I can exchange parts and run it with 16 GB of memory.
