Scroll Locktogether while in a pc master mode to make
Macintosh Power Key.
MotivationI normally use non-windows pc mode (=p) for my kinesis. Now that I'm on a mac I need a Command key, so I switched to windows pc mode. Windows pc mode only changes one thumb key relative to non-pc mode, the right alt becomes a Command/Windows key. Mac mode remaps all the alt and control locations and produces two Command/Windows keys.
I rarely need the power button, so I hadn't bothered to figure this out. But now I want to be able to suspend/power my laptop without opening it and waiting on graphic layout as the system switches to multi-monitor mode.
How-toIt's a simple matter to pull the
Power Keybinding from mac (=m) mode into any of the other modes. Press
= "Scroll Lock"to copy the binding from default into current. The tricky part was finding the original binding.
