I would like to do the following with my CAPS_LOCK key:

  1. Remap CAPS_LOCK+h to the left arrow key
  2. Remap CAPS_LOCK+j to the down arrow key, etc
  3. Allow CAPS_LOCK to STAY as a CAPS_LOCK key if it's just pressed on its own
  4. Allow this mapping to survive after my laptop wakes up from suspend/hibernate.

I've been looking around everywhere and I'm very confused. Some sites say you shouldn't use xmodmap since it's old. Some sites say you should twiddle with some file in /etc/pm/sleep.d, whereas others call for /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d.

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.
I would appreciate any help.
