Recently I've been using openbox but it has been driving me crazy! Mainly because when you hold down a key it does not repeat like it does on all other WMs and OSs. After googling around forever I found I can enable my auto repeating keys in ~/.config/openbox/ with the following code.
xset r on

    Unfortunately this appears to break when using Synergy. Switching away from the screen and back seems to cause the xset command to disable. By disable I mean you have to run the xset r on command again for it to work again. But switching screens will turn it off every time.
