Enclosed is a mail I sent out recently on preventing the break sequence.
See if that helps

  I felt sure this would be in some FAQ somewhere or even the documentation
but I have been unable to find any information.

  I have a bunch of Ultra 10s running out-of-the-box Solaris 7.
Unfortuantley I have very little physical room and not enough keyboards for
each. Eventually there will be a CPU switch which will remediate this issue.

  How can I stop the machine from returning to the Openboot (OK ) prompt
whenever I unplug the keyboard? I thought the behaviour would be such that
it would happen when the kb was plugged in but not when it is unplugged.

  Thanks for any pointers
