I only have a standard keyboard so I don't know if this will help you or 
not, but I noticed when using M-x global-set-key that if I hit a key like 
Scroll Lock it put a notation in the prompt for the keybinding. I'd try 
this. But there are other people that may have better suggestions.

For what it's worth.
