Rebind menu key to ctrl?

Hello all,
Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this, but it seemed the closest.
My problem is that on my laptop I want to rebind the menu key to be CTRL (I’m an emacs user and the r-ctrl key is too far for my pinky to reach comfortably). Now, I actually have this working using the following .xmodmaprc:

keycode 135 = Control_R
add Control = Control_R
!map menu to Control_R

The trouble is, every time I sleep my laptop, upon waking I need to re-run xmodmap ~/.xmodmaprc
I’ve tried adding this to my wake protocal in, but apparently it doesn’t work because .pm is unaware of which xterm will be used. So, my question is twofold:

  1. Is there a way to make sure this xmodmap comes back appropriately after sleep?
    and 2) If not, is there some other way to rebind my key to control?
