Ok, I give up. I have tried every possible configuration I know, "P" "Control-P" "Alt-P" "Printscreen" "Scroll Lock" "Control-C" "Alt-C"

I have tried everything I can think of, I give up.

How on earth do you take screenshots??!

press print screen then open an image editor and paste the file. alternately if you have paint shop pro you can click 'file', 'import', 'screen capture' and 'setup' and set up a hot key for creating screenshots.

hope this has helped.

It's just ALT-P

A problem may be that you you use the right ALT. I think it only works with the left ALT.
