MediaPortal will not allow windows shortcut keys to work (1 Viewer)

Anyone else run into the problem of trying to get Windows 7 to acknowledge shortcuts via hot keys while Mediaportal is running? I have custom automation triggered by shortcut hotkeys (such as Ctrl-Alt-B to run a custom app for example). When Mediaportal is running, the key combination is ignored (not passed on to Windows). Not only does it not run, but after closing Mediaportal the hotkey will stay not-working until Explorer.exe is ended and re-started (or a reboot of course). Why does Mediaportal not allow hotkeys to run and why does it "break" them?

Anyone know a way to remedy this?... hotkey operation is critical to the automation i'm trying to run.

Thank you in advance
