Play/Pause buttons on keyboard #1

I listen to music whilst on my computer and use the F7 F8 and F9 buttons on the keyboard to control music playback all the time. When in Aperture they control the starting and stopping of slideshows which I find rather frustrating. I constantly have to switch to another app, then hit the 'Skip fwd' key for example, and then switch back to Aperture.

Does anyone know if there is away of disabling the keyboard slideshow controls in Aperture? I can't see it my self..

Thanks! P

I’m pretty sure we had this discussion here before and the consensus then was as Joseph says now. The keyboard controls cannot be stopped from controlling Aperture’s slideshows. I know I’ve tried to figure it out for myself unsuccessfully.
