Certian keys cannot be remapped

For some reason on my laptop (Toshiba Satellite A105-S4114), when I press the Windows key, it goes to sleep. I want the Windows key to be set to the <super> modifier. How can I change this behavior?

Also, the power button is set to logout. How can I set it to bring up the shutdown menu.

P.S. I have tried configuring my settings in the keyboard (and keyboard shortcuts) menus and this hasn't helped.

xmodmap -pke outputs:
keycode 222 = XF86PowerOff
keycode 127 = NoSymbol Super_L
keycode 128 = NoSymbol Hyper_L
keycode 115 = Super_L
keycode 116 = Super_R

xmodmap -pm outputs:
mod4 Super_L (0x73), Super_R (0x74), Super_L (0x7f), Hyper_L (0x80)

what does xev say, when you press the windows-key (better log the output, if fedora will go to sleep when you press the win-key):
Code:
xev > xev-log.txt
post the last lines of the "xev-log.txt"-file here (and don't press any other button after pressing the windows-key).

Here is the output of xev. It locks the laptop, not put it to sleep.
