Default [Q] Mapping keys to do certain tasks

Guys, is there a way to map the bottom buttons (Back + Home + Menu Buttons) to do specific tasks? For example, i wanted to long press the back button so that my phone could go sleep.

Unfortunately, i cant do that. Theres only limited functions for mapping

Hi bro, i don't know if it is what you looking for, but i watched a video here showing an app called QuickClick. You can assign commands, tasks or apps from volume buttons. Maybe it be a workaround for your backbutton problem.
See http://www.xda-developers.com/androi...-developer-tv/

So, if got it, you can preset a sequence to make your fone go sleep, etc.

Its a brilliant app to be very honest but it doesnt have the option to sleep my phone. But the fact you can record a video or take pic in a few clicks is cool though! Thanks for app suggestion!
