I prefer using external keyboard with my MacBook. When no external monitors
are used, a typical setup is placing the keyboard above the internal one, so I
can still use the internal touchpad.
But sometimes the external keyboard may press some keys of the internal
keyboard. There is a
solution to disable the
internal keyboard, but it is tedious to run the command manually.
# Disable, ignore the warning
sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBTopCase.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBTCKeyboard.kext/
sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBTopCase.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBTCKeyboard.kext/
Fortunately, Keyboard Maestro supports
executing scripts when a USB device is attached or detached.
