Can you use the power button for anything else?

    I have the new 2016 MBP 15" and was wondering if you can customize the power/touch id button for anything else other than turning it off. Seems kind of useless as it still is a button. Wouldn't mind it being a shortcut for sleep.

    There is no customizing the power / Touch ID button.

    I realize this does not help or answer your question in any way, but this is a +1 for the touchbar. I needed a quick access screen lock and added it to the touchbar. The 2016 MBP doesn't seem to have a lock shortcut, ctrl+alt+del equivalent in windows. The old sleep hot keys don't work on the 2016.

    You can add the sleep shortcut to the touch bar. No need to customize the power button, and you really shouldn't.
