Default Give me a Break (key) - 03-13-2009, 10:17 PM

Does anyone know whether it's possible to generate a BREAK with the keyboard? I have the A04 BIOS, which I understand introduced F-11 and F-12 via Fn-Z and Fn-X respectively. Or if someone can point me to where that is documented, perhaps it would tell me. Thanks.

I haven't seen such a thing mentioned anywhere. You might search for "keyboard remapping" to see if that provides an alternative.

Windows XP and Vista's on-screen keyboard has a break key, but Windows 7 does not. Interesting.

Is there any way to generate a break key on the Mini 9?

I need it when I'm using a Terminal Server connection so that I can switch from the (fullscreen) host connection to TS connection on another host or to switch to the local computer when I need to cut and paste between sessions.
