Remap your Macbook's power key
Use PowerKey to remap your Macbook Pro or Macbook Air's power key to a useful function.
Forward Delete ⌦ is the most popular replacement.
Your computer will still shut down if you hold the power key. Be careful!
Choose from one of the following power key replacements.
- Page Up
- Page Down
If you have an idea for a replacement key that should be included, file a github issue.
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 Eject has been replaced by Power on the newer Macbook Pro and Macbook Air models.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.
If you have any problems or suggestions, contact me via github.
