I got some "close to useless" USB sleep buttons for computers from a marketing campaign and was wondering how to use it to something cooler. Like.. Playing sad trombone when pressed.
So I went around looking how does it installs, and finally seems to be simply a HID keyboard key. Googlin' a bit more, I've found Patriot's question which seemed quite the answer - but no. The programs they describe there do not trap the commands from the USB dongle even in "teach mode" if I press it my computer goes to sleep -_-
What would be the correct way to find and remap that key to something specific?
Edit Forgot to mention the operation system. it is Windows 7
