    Just a warning, the volume up, down, and mute keys don't work really in Windows XP. The only working one is the volume down key, which will mute the sound, if you press it again it will not unmute and you will have to change the volume control manually by going to the sound control pannel.

    So don't make the mistake like I did, it muted the sound in my game and I had to exit. This also happens on any Windows XP machine with an Apple Keyboard so it's not just something with Boot Camp beta. Maybe there's a key mapper that will allow volume control keys?

    Any further information would be awesome! :D

    EDIT: Wait....now they work fine for me....maybe it just doesn't work in game...or it goes on and off? :confused: :eek: Anyone else try this? I'm using the built-in iMac speakers by the way.

    On my PC it works fine. Turning volume up and down, mute and un-mute again.

    mine too

    yup, my eject and volume keys don't work

    How about the brightness keys?? I can change mine but I have hold shift and ctrl

    The guide mentions something about restarting while holding the mouse button, but I haven't tried this!
