Question for Cherry MX Blue owners

Okay, so I've bought a Cherry MX Tester and this is how it goes with Blues: If you press lightly, the first millimeter (1) of key travel is effortless but then you suddenly encounter a bump and need to apply a bit more force. So when you apply this force, you overcome a bump instantly and hear a click (2). Now, while pressed, if you reduce the force again, you return to the point where you originally encountered a tactile bump but the key is not actually reset yet (3) - it has to return to its full height by reducing force even more (4). But my tester doesn't have LED indicators so I'd like to know if you're at step number (3), is the key still activated (like holding down a mouse button) or does it register only once and then act as not pressed at all? I know it's a weird question, but I need to know how I can use my keys when gaming and if the key is actually still pressed-down at step (3), I can use that to circumvent hysteresis by reducing the force a bit instantly after a click so that I can press it again faster after while still holding the button for in-game action.

I wonder there's no answer to the question yet,
perhaps there's just too much text around it :lol:

Basically, the question is:
Xannot wrote:[On its way back up but before reaching the tactile bump again], is the key still activated (like holding down a mouse button) or does it register only once and then act as not [still] pressed […]?

Sorry, unable to answer myself.

If you try to circumvent the click and press it again, the key will have already gone into repeating mode because you held it down too long. The faster you let off the key, the faster you can press it again.
