On-Screen-Display for hotkeys of IBM ThinkPads
With TPB it is possible to bind programs to the ThinkPad, Mail, Home and Search buttons. TPB can also run a callback program on each state change with the changed state and the new state as options. So it is possible to trigger several actions on different events.
TPB has an on-screen display OSD to show volume, mute, brightness and some other information. Furthermore TPB supports a software mixer, as some models of the R series ThinkPads have no hardware mixer to change the volume.
