Wow! People on my level! This place is nice :)

Related to this issue, I already knew how to change the TaskManager, but haven't yet found one with the functionality I want.

This is gonna sound like another version of the Text Editor request. But I actually need a Task Manager which filters certain Tasks from the list. This sounds like a Trojen or Spyware trick I know, but I run a network at a secondary school, and have to struggle between allowing the kids to kill Word when they search for clipard and it locks up for like 3hrs on the search not allowing them to do anything else till it's finnished, and stopping them from closing essential system processes, or worse, attempting to close the network monitoring and security tasks.

Does anyone know of a TaskManager with filtered Task List?

I have to say I have a habbit of going to press the Escape or Function Lock key, and my finger slips off and on to the recessed User button so that the flipping PC hybernates. :(

The user key in Windows can tell the system to Sleep, Hybernate or Shutdown. Why can't it pop up a shutdown dialogue I could choose from these three or cancel if I hit it by mistake. Actually I do intentionally use it when the screen is of as this machine is also a Print Server on the home network so a default on a 5/10 second countdown would work too.

The recess on my logitec keyboard I'm sure is intended to stop me hitting it by accident, but when I slip a regular key would stop a side on press, so the recessed key is just worse.

I know these extended keys (Function Lock & User) can be a pain to program, which is why I've never done anything to fix it. If anyone knows a way to break out their extended functionality I'd be greatful. The Function Lock feature is a pain too as the system starts or restores with the function keys in extended mode and requires me to press it before I get access to F1-F12 again, and TBH, I never use them for anything else.

A program for Function Lock On/Off at startup like the numerous Caps/Scroll/NumLoc programs would be fab, but I don't think it's possible because the state of FLock is held internally in the keyboard and not transmitted to the PC... I think. Either that or I'm not using low enough level APIs to catch it.
