I've got a Samsung Slate Windows 8 tablet. There is no break/pause key on the bluetooth keyboard. How can I remap those keys or is there a work around? These keys are relevant to programmers as they are often used in debugging and process interruption.

It uses syntax:
Above AHK script will cause Ctrl+Alt+a to send Break keypress.
