What if I need to press the power key?

You can still prompt the system [Restart | Sleep | Cancel | Shut Down] pop-up by pressing Fn + Power. This app does not change the power key's function when modifier keys are held.

But my Macbook has an Eject key!

Right! Eject has been replaced by Power on the newer Macbook Pro and Macbook Air models.

Your laptop's Power button will actually work with this app, but it's up to you if that's desireable.
