@t_tovenaar: ur welcome.

@jan.: I don't know since suspend to disk is completely broken on my system and I have no intentions of fixing it at the moment.

OK, now set up your .xbindkeysrc like this:

"/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Left]""
  m:0x0 + b:8
"/usr/bin/xvkbd -xsendevent -text "\[Alt_L]\[Right]""
  m:0x0 + b:9
"any command u want"
  m:0x0 + b:10
"any command u want here too"
  m:0x0 + b:11
"and anything u want here too"
  m:0x0 + b:12
The first two are for your back and forward buttons, the rest you can either do what you want with, or tell me what you want them to do and I can suggest some commands. If I understood correctly, you don't have xbindkeys run at startup. Make sure it's installed and put it in your startup programs for it to work.
