What is a looping Macro ?

To Exit a For..Next, Do..Until or While..Wend you just do an ExitLoop command.

To elaborate on what Larried said, what I usually do in similar situations is create two hotkeys, one to turn on the macro, one to turn it off, and a variable flag to keep track of it, e.g....

$Active = 0
hotkeyset("^1","TurnOn") ; control-1 turns it on
hotkeyset("^2","TurnOff") ; control-2 turns it off

while 1
    while $Active
       ; your looping actions go here
    wend
    sleep(100)
wend

func TurnOn()
    $Active = 1
endfunc

func TurnOff()
    $Active = 0
endfunc

What is wrong with the examples in the help file.

; Press Esc to terminate script, Pause/Break to "pause"

Global $Paused
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "TogglePause")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate")
HotKeySet("+!d", "ShowMessage") ;Shift-Alt-d

;;;; Body of program would go here;;;;
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
;;;;;;;;

Func TogglePause()
    $Paused = NOT $Paused
    While $Paused
        sleep(100)
        ToolTip('Script is "Paused"',0,0)
    WEnd
    ToolTip("")
EndFunc

Func Terminate()
    Exit 0
EndFunc

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