My HP laptop has the Scroll Lock key in a different location to most keyboard layouts. I have to press and hold the FUNCTION key and then hit the SCROLL LOCK key to take a shot.

Some keyboards also list the Scroll Lock key as SLK. Another suggestion is have a look near your F9-F12 keys... it might be there somewhere.

Otherwise, maybe invest in a wireless keyboard that you know has the Scroll Lock key in an easy to find location.

Hope this helps

I play maple on a macbook pro and I have the same problem, there's no screenshot button.

My laptop doesn't have the button at all either. My old laptop did, but a lot of newer ones don't come with it.
They should really let you change the screenshot key...
