Winamp Keyboard Shortcuts

I'm using Winamp 5.08 and a Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard (with Intellitype 2.2 drivers), and for some reason, the keyboard multimedia keys (Play/Pause, Stop, Forward, Backward) don't respond sometimes.

They used to work 100% of the time, regardless of whether Winamp was focused or not. Now they always work when Winamp is focused, but occasionally don't when it isn't...does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? I'm not running any other programs besides IE.

Prefs (Ctrl+P) > Global Hotkeys > check 'Enabled'

No luck?

Good Winamp plugins by Joonas, DrO and shaneh.

I don't like global hotkeys because they focus Winamp (really annoying in games). Thanks for the links, but I don't think they're relevant to my problem. The keys worked fine for over a year up until about a week ago, and since then they've been really iffy. I didn't modify Winamp or the drivers before the problem started occuring. A reinstall of both the drivers and winamp didnt fix the problem.

I think another program maybe stealing focus from winamp and thus taking control of the keys (as if WMP is focused for example)
