borg303,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :D

You need to deactivate the HotKey as you enter the function and then reactivate it as you leave. Otherwise you keep activating the HotKey itself and enter an endless recursive loop - as you found. :rip:

Try this:

HotKeySet("6", "press")

While 1
    Sleep(10) ; Very important to save your CPU
WEnd

Func press()
    ; Unset the HotKey
    HotKeySet("6")
    ; Now you can use the key normally
    Send ("6" )
    Send ("X")
    ; And now reset the HotKey
    HotKeySet("6", "press")
EndFunc

All clear? :oops:
