Summary0006108: MultiMedia Play/Pause button fails when application is minimized
DescriptionOn a clean install, using the Microsoft Comfort 2000 keyboard (without any intellitype drivers), the following behavior is observed:
-When MM, Notepad, or Windows explorer are in focus: Play/Pause works correctly
-When Firefox, Gain, or EditPad are in focus: Play/Pause button causes either of the following to occur (seems to alternate randomly between these behaviors):
 - Aeropeek always show the 'Pause' indicator, despite the fact that MM is playing, and each press causes a momentary pause
 - Aeropeek always shows the 'Play' indicator, despite the fact that MM is paused, and each press causes a moment of playback

I suspect that the root of the problem is as Peke described here:

But that doesn't completely explain the strange Aeropeek behavior...?!

Even more strange, though, is that when I go to the hotkeys configuration panel, and edit the hotkey for Playback: Play/Pause to use the Media Play/Pause button (which appears to be _exactly_ what the default config is), then the behavior changes to:
-When MM, Gaim, EditPad or Firefox are in focus: Play/Pause works correctly!
-When Notepad or Windows Explorer are in focus: Play/Pause button has no effect!
Additional InformationNote:
-For Windows Media Player, Winamp, and iTunes, Play/Pause works in all cases except when Windows Explorer is in focus
-iTunes doesn't seem to have Global hotkeys support
-user indicated that problems were only introduced once Aeropeek features were added to MM:
TagsNo tags attached.

Still Not Working in 1282, Play/Pause is recognized twice in MM when Global is Set.

Pic of Global settings is uploaded to FTP

Tested on Logitech G15 and Internet Navigator, Turbo Vision 9001

As reported in , there is a regression causing MM freeze in some cases.
