enabling the debugger with Shift+F12 (laptop)

On my HP laptop, without an external keyboard, I have to press "function" modifier key before I can press a function key.

Works fine to bring winuae interface (function+F12) but fails to call the debugger (function+shift+F12). It just ignores function in that case, and does something else, like disabling wifi.

Any other people with the problem? any way to remap the key with some other key?

Nah, on both my laptops <F1 - F12> keys are standard presses... no need to press <Fn> first

I have seen what you mentioned on a few recent laptops and IMHO it sucks big time. <F1 - F12> should be the default and then you only have to press <Fn> in order apply stuff like Wi-Fi / Sleep / Screen Output / blah / blah / blah.

What laptop is it that you have? Is there no utility to swap things around / customise?

Not sure how it's a WinUAE issue; though I'm sure Toni could come up with a solution. Obvious, quick workaround is to plug in a standard keyboard.

on many laptop you have to enter BIOS setup and change settings

ciao!

EDIT: if I don't remember badly on HP You have to press ESC (or F10?) at powerup to enter Startup Menu and BIOS settings

Does END+F12 works?

@all didn't think about that BIOS stuff. I could definitely switch that behaviour by the bios. And no END+F12 doesn't work.

Actually WinUAE crashes when switching wifi/bluetooth off (plane mode), probably because my bluetooth mouse disappears in the process.

And of course standard keyboard fixes it, but I can't carry an extra keyboard at my sons basketball training that would be too nerdy.

EDIT: BIOS allows to change that, so I did that and it works now, thanks, I guess WinUAE can ignore this issue now (I have a lot of crashes with version 3.4 though, but I'll narrow it down in another post)
