"Menu" button disabled when I override onKeyDown

I'm not sure this is the problem, but you probably should return the value
of super.onKeyDown(keyCode,event); for the cases where you're not handling
the key.

Basically, if you're not handling the key, you want Android to use the
exact same behavior as if you didn't have an onKeyDown() method in the
first place. Right now, though, you're always returning true, which may or
may not be what super.onKeyDown() would return if you weren't overriding

If that doesn't clear up the problem, write back!
