                                                                              Would like to be able to keep remote device awake that doesn't have typical "sleep" settings.
                                                                                GeneralP12021-02-24 21:20:59.884Z

                                                                                The escape key takes me out of full screen. Is it possible to remap this to another set of keystrokes?
                                                                                  GeneralS12021-02-18 20:54:18.719Z
