Hi

How do I set up a hotkey that would execute only when the mouse pointer is inside a particular area (right side of the screen)?

This works okay for me.
Code:
// Get the location of the mouse cursor
var mouseLoc = sp.GetCurrentMousePoint();

// Get the rectangle of the screen where mouse is located
var mouseScreenRect = Screen.FromPoint(mouseLoc).Bounds;

// Divide the width of the screen in half and add the result to the Left starting location of the screen
// to define the center of the screen. parseInt ensures only whole numbers are used
var screenCenter = parseInt(mouseScreenRect.Left + (mouseScreenRect.Width / 2));

// If the mouse's X location is at or to the right of the screen's center, then show message
if(mouseLoc.X >= screenCenter) {
    sp.MessageBox("Right Side of screen", "Hotkey");
}

Another method using regions. This would be easier to work with if you wanted to divide the screen into a grid and do different things in different cells.

This example only creates a 1 Row, 2 Column region - but you could do 3 x 3 for example
Code:
// Get location of mouse cursor
var mouseLoc = sp.GetCurrentMousePoint();

// Get region the mouse cursor is in, based on the screen rectangle, 
// using 2 columns and 1 row to split the screen rectangle into
var columns = 2;
var rows = 1;
var region = sp.GetRegionFromPoint(Screen.FromPoint(mouseLoc).Bounds, mouseLoc, columns, rows); 

// If mouse is in Column 2 (right half) and Row 1 (only 1 row possible, but to demonstrate)
// Show message
if(region.Column === 2 && region.Row === 1) {
    sp.MessageBox("Right Side of screen", "Hotkey");
}
