Hi
 Two options, the AWT events, keyboard/mouse listener, or by registering an AWTEventListener with the ToolKit. The other option for gamepads/joysticks etc to to try JInput

Hi
 You shouldn't really be doing it, but the Toolkit methods allow you to get system wide events under windows, and if they don't, the JInput definitly does

I think the ToolKit events are only Process wide.

That would make sence to me.
JInput on the other hand captures system wide, you don't even *need* a window, let along one thats in focus, this is true on windows and linux, not sure about osX though.
