    Just as the thread title says :

    I glanced over at my computer today - was curious, how can I reprogram the "eject" button for something useful since I do not have a superdrive.

    Better yet, is there a way to program the eject button to do something when there is no superdrive plugged in, and resume normal function when it is in use ?


    Anyone else thought about this?

    Well.. uh... first off, what would you want it to do?

    - activate spaces
    - enter "force quit" mode
    - sleep mode

    basically, anything other than "not doing anything" as it is right now !

    (I know there are hot corners for other things...but I am just interested in getting more use out of a non-functional button as it stands now)

    Try your System Preferences:

    Under the Mouse & Keyboard icon and then under the Keyboard shortcuts tab... maybe it'll let you use it.
