    I don't use dashboard, but I do use 'Anxiety' to manage my to-do's ...
    It would be cool if I could trigger/pop up Anxiety by hitting the Dashboard key on my keyboard (F4) instead of bringing up the Dashboard ...

    Any way this can be done?

    Thanks in advance

    As far as I know, the Dashboard function key can only operate Dashboard. In order to map keys, you'd have to use fn+F4 or enable  -> System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard -> Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.

    If I use the F-keys as standard function keys, is there any way to make F1 and F2 adjust the brightness instead of launching spotlight etc?

    Yes, just hold fn when you press them. It just inverts it.
