When I'm remote desktopped into other machines or using web browsers that have apps requiring function key usage, my Mac steals the keys instead... I'll hit shift F1 to try to perform an app function, but instead my speakers turn off. How can I disable OS X stealing function key presses meant for applications?
One thing I did not think of, this is a Razer keyboard, so their software may interfere with normal usage. In this case though, if I put the keyboard into "Game" mode, function keys turn into normal function keys again. I can then also map my volume controls to the macro keys and not lose that function either!
