Android already has the ability to treat the "end" key as the end or 
home. It also acts as the power key when held for something like 5 
seconds bringing up a menu to allow sleep and shutdown. I just need to 
extend this to allow for the menu key to be a part of that scenario. It 
won't happen immediately as there are some other things I need to 
address like getting page flipping to work.
