    Awesome, Thanks.
    It works for W3J (managed to change the functionality of the useless keys on the left).

    Can I request a new feature ?
    -To add a new custom function for the Special key disable/enable feature.
    (If you know about the W3J, there is a great possibility that you would press the special buttons on the sides when you want to pick up the laptop from both sides)

    Works 100% perfect with M2N. Good job

    P.S. Where can I find and download the latest ATK0100 driver? ASUS's ftp is very untidy, I can't find the things I want...

    Feature suggestion:

    As the program can detect the events by pressing on the hotkey, I believe you can extend the program to get the event id of a third party software (like finding the event id of winamp's play/stop button by clicking on it). This way, we can use the media player keys with Winamp.

    Use keystoke events.

    1) Open Winamp and register (for example) Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Z as a hotkey for play event;
    2) Start AsusNbKeysCtrl and add some new event (power4gear key, for example) and set its action to "keystroke" and set the same keystroke Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Z. Save settings.

    Now by pressing power4gear key you make system think that you have just pressed Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Z. So it works as hotkey for Winamp's play event!

    This way you can assign any additional buttons of notebook to act as hotkeys for any programs.

    PS: sorry for bad english...

    NP: Thanks, it works as I wanted

    This is a great softare. I think you should put it to a website and put some advertisements on it, so you can make some money of it
