I just bought a new keyboard (Inca IWS-549). The keyboard has a nice style and 18 multimedia keys. But among them at the left, I have the shutdown key (just above the esc key). If I touch it, the system shut downs and it's super sensitive. I want to disable this key. How can I do this?

I tried using keytweak, but first I have to press that key to change it which is impossible since the system shutdowns whenever I try that.

Any idea?

I am using windows 7.

Go to Control Panel > Power Options > Advanced > When I Press the Power Button on My Computer

enter image description here

Choose “Ask me what to do” and now when that button is pressed, you get the computer shutdown options.

    Was that that simple? Thank you very much:) i thought those options only works for physical buttons on the tower. I had no option such as "ask me what to do" so i chose "do nothing" which is better for me. Sep 24, 2014 at 12:26

  • Works on the actual power button on the laptop but not for the media key on my keyboard. Feb 28, 2017 at 11:21

    I don't think this is the appropriate answer. What the question asks is "power button on keyborard", not the "power button on case"
