Accelerator is happening, but you have to shake hard!!. Otherwise I would need my application to be notified (it runs on autostart, so it is already running) when the hot (convenience) key is pressed.
I think of using another (secondary) application that notifies the main (backlight) application (and that secondary application starts on hotkey, notifies and closes), back light is switched on in an event. Then again this hot key is pressed, the main application is notified, to turn it off, and the secondary application closes.
There could be a direct way of doing it. I mean: do I need this secondary application?
