I frequently run Windows 7 and Mac OS X as guest OS in VMWare Workstation on Ubuntu 11.10. Whenever I hit the Super (Windows) key in Windows/Mac OS the Unity launcher is activated. Even if I'm running VMWare fullscreen. This is really annoying. Is there any way to tell Compiz/Unity/etc to ignore the Super key while VMWare is focused? I know I could change Unity to use another key but I'd like to be able to use the Super key if possible when I'm not working in VMWare.
