Deactivate volume buttons possible?

I gave the Galaxy Nexus to my father. Everytime he takes it out of the leatherbag he accidentally touches the volume keys.
Is there a way to deactivate the volume keys, so the ringer cannot be changed, but the volume when phoning can be changed?

If you have root privileges just edit /system/usr/keylayout/tuna-gpio-keypad.kl.
key 114 UNKNOWN
key 115 UNKNOWN
Backup the file before.

Installing gravitybox via exposed add-on will give you full control over the volume buttons + more.

Eg.
Set it to only change media volume by default.

Remove annoying beeping sound when pressing volume buttons.

Expanded on screen volume controls for ringer/media/notification/alarm/in-call.

You might be able to help me sir.

Is there a way to map these hardware keys to preform different actions? If possible I'd like the power button to go to the home screen.

Yep. Just check Generic.kl (same folder) for a full list of commands. In your case:


key 114 VOLUME_DOWN WAKE
key 115 VOLUME_UP WAKE
key 116 HOME

PS I have edited my previous message.

Setting key 116 to HOME didn't work. After a reboot my power button just didn't do anything. Even long holding didn't make the power off screen open. I reverted and it works fine again.

Here is working. Make sure you have deleted WAKE. The string it's just:
key 116 HOME
EDIT: Try this http://d-h.st/xFp
