What did you mean by 'mode'?
The back lighting?
Just make a copy of the profile (select the profile you want to make a new lighting mode for, click the three white dots and choose 'copy' in the menu that drops down). Next, change the light setting on the new copy. Repeat this for as many lighting modes as you want for that layout. Then, go back to the first of your profile sets and bind a key somewhere that'll swap to the next profile (same maps, just different lighting mode). Set up as many lighting modes as you want in a chain loop in this manner.
If you mean changing the keymap, there is a way to bind those changes to keys or buttons. In Synapse there are several choices in how this is done. (Hold down a modifer, or do a map 'switch' at press, etc.)
Also, have a look at the part of Synapse that allows you to load up a profile depending on what program or application has the foreground in Windows. You can have your profiles autoload depending on what you pull into the front.
Just for reference you might be interested in './Windows/explorer.exe' (the desktop itself). Out on the web you could also figure out what app is responsible for your login menu, shutdown proceedures, etc...and have different backlighting for the various stages of OS usage as well.
You can also bind Orbweaver keys/buttons/switches to swap out profiles or settings of other Synapse 2.0 devices (I.E., Tell a BlackWidow Keyboard to change profiles. Tell a Razer mouse to change resolutions...etc).Edited by Credo1970 - 3/29/13 at 10:55am
