Default Automate 'Use F1, F2 keys as standard function keys' when PT is running

Hey there,

I was thinking of something that might prove to be useful for PT users on an Apple laptop - I just don't know how to do it in, say, Automator.
I'm used to use my F1, etc keys to control functions on Mac OS such as brightness, volume, etc.

I would like, however, for those keys to work as Pro Tools function keys to control edit modes, for example (F1 shuffle mode, F2 Slip Mode, etc..) WHENEVER Pro Tools is running and then change back to work as system function keys when Pro Tools is closed.

I'm sure this is possible using Automator but I couldn't figure out how. Is anyone using this ? If so, that Automator script might prove useful for everyone else out there.

Thanks in advance.
Stay safe.
