TPB is a little program that enables you to use the IBM ThinkPad(tm) special keys.
With TPB it is possible to bind a program to the ThinkPad, Mail, Home and Search button.
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 a on-screen display (OSD) to show volume, mute, brightness and some other informations.
Furthermore TPB supports a software mixer, as the R series ThinkPads have no hardware mixer to change the volume.
