    I'd love to see shortcut keys to control switches in the control panel so I don't have to open the CP, use the mouse to slip the switch and close it again.

    Some thoughts on how it could work:
    - Use a modifier key (ctrl) along with a key for the shortcut
    - When the modifier key is pressed, an overlay is displayed (not toggled) that shows the possible switches to change along with their key assignment. Possbily disable display behavior is settings to not show the overlay.
    - Each switch would also have the key labeled to easily tell with shortcut change which switch.
    - Control pre configured keys (Power, Oxygen, Thruster, etc.) with ctrl 1-6
    - Control custom keys with ctrl Q-Y
    - Control custom signals with ctrl A-H

    This sort of player configurable hot key system would be glorious.

    I'd also like to see an on off toggle for the default switches in the p menu. This could deactivate things hard coded, like grow lights being grouped with all lights in default. Disabling the main power default to avoid accidental depressurizations, and so forth. And away to disable autogroup in devices.

    I would love to even just have them as hotkeys. Just 6 keys I can bind however I want.

    Control panel shortcuts and signals as hotkeys would be very useful, yes.

    Or simple allow us to add CP devices functions to Sidebar together with weapons.
