Hello user2037,

First, Welcome to the AutoIt Forums ;)

Would HotKeySet() work for what your trying to do?

Global $Paused
HotKeySet("{HOME}", "TogglePause") ; Will pause your script if the 'Home' is pressed,
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
HotKeySet("+!d", "ShowMessage") ;Shift-Alt-d

;;;; Body of program would go here ;;;;
While 1

Func TogglePause()
 $Paused = NOT $Paused
 While $Paused
 ToolTip('Script is "Paused"',0,0)

Func Terminate()
 Exit 0

Func ShowMessage()
 MsgBox(4096,"","This is a message.")

As you can see with the other HotKey's there are multiple ways to run a function from a HotKey or HotKey combination. There is also _IsPressed(), although I generaly prefer HotkeySet() since its more Global.
