Not sure whether the functionality has been lost by switching to Lion, or by genius developers simply dropping it in iTunes 10.4(.1?), but now when iTunes is minimised and still the active program you can no longer control the music with the keyboard commands. I'm running an old '07 MBP so I don't have previous, play/pause and next as function buttons up top, I always used Spacebar, Enter, and the left/right arrows. Now it will only recognise them if iTunes is maximised and it's doing my head in. Anyone know of a keyboard based work around, or maybe whether they dropped it in 10.4 or 10.4.1 as for now I could just downgrade. I'm aware I could configure a more complicated command like cmd+* but, I want the simplicity of just being able to hit space rather than messing around with combinations.
