I'm not sure what exactly you're asking. I will say past Apple laptop did have 
the ability to page up or down by using the function key + the up or down arrow 
keys. It looks like Apple removed that ability. I tried using function key + 
up, control key + up, option key + up, and command key + up. These do not cause 
the Monitor to scroll without the patch.
