listening to key events while the application is in the background

Hi,

    Is there any way with which an app running in the background can listen to key events?

How does Alt LGLG, etc works?

alt+lglg works via http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/7.1.0api/net/rim/device/api/ui/Screen.html#openProductionB...
