So, i'm just posting this here because i think its useful information, but there may be better forums. I recently purchased Logitech's Tablet Keyboard for the ipad. Its a great keyboard, bluetooth-enabled, and while the ipad (and ipad software) has a way to go to enable the functionality that a keyboard engenders, its a big step towards making the ipad a productivity/creativity device. Instead of, you know, an Angry Birds device.
Anyway, i've got this great piece of hardware, and i use it also with my desktop (after purchasing a Bluetooth dongle). Unfortch, this keyboard doesn't have a "delete", "print screen", or "escape" key. not necessary for the ipad really, but definitely for using your desktop. I found a nifty solution in AutoHotKey, http://www.autohotkey.com/, which allows you to remap functions to any combination of keystrokes. You create small scripts that run in the background and specify your keymappings.
I was able to get my logitech keyboard to use the above commands by running a script with the following commands:
You can acutally use this program to do all sorts of neat little shortcuts (e.g., #space::Run www.google.com), but i've only just downloaded it today. Sorry Logitech for the 3rd party advertisement, but it totally enhances your hardware!
Hope this helps someone!

I had similar problems with that keyboard and I have written a complete guide about how to remap it, you can find it here

Just want to point out that Fn-3 brings up the iPad's on-screen keyboard, which has Esc, Del, PgUp, PgDn, etc. It's a two step process: bring up keyboard, hit key, but it works ...
