This should do what you need, it will just press x continually for 2 seconds.

$TimeStamp = TimerInit() ;Create timestamp
While TimerDiff($TimeStamp) < 2000 ;While the timestamp is less than 2 seconds old, do this

Send("{x down/up}") is for use with key combinations, so stuff like Send("{x down}y{x up}") would be like holding x and pressing y, then releasing both.
