We would really need to see it to give you a good answer, but as a pointer (if you want to work it out for yourself) if you have a continuous loop involved in your script, then you need to plan a way to get out of the loop. Take a look at HotKeySet() in the help file, it may give you an idea or two.


[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

I agree about the script, but doesn't seem like he cares enough to post it, so just in case someone else see's this when they are searching for answers, this might do the trick

Global $StopIt, $Pause
HotKeySet('{End}', 'StopMacroCompletely')
HotKeySet('{PgUp}', 'StartMacro')
HotKeySet('{Pause}', 'PauseMacroFromPoint')

While 1
    Sleep(100000)
WEnd

Func StartMacro()
    Local $count = 0
    $StopIt = Not $StopIt
    While $StopIt
        $count += 1;The tooltip and the $count += 1 are just here for visualization, replace with actual macro
        ToolTip($count, 0, 0)
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd
    ToolTip('')
EndFunc

Func StopMacroCompletely()
    $StopIt = Not $StopIt
EndFunc

Func PauseMacroFromPoint()
    $Pause = NOT $Pause
    While $Pause
        sleep(10)
    WEnd
EndFunc

Edit:

Or you could just use the same hotkey

Global $StopIt, $Pause
HotKeySet('{PgUp}', 'Start_And_Stop_Macro')
HotKeySet('{Pause}', 'PauseMacroFromPoint')

While 1
    Sleep(100000)
WEnd

Func Start_And_Stop_Macro()
    Local $count = 0
    $StopIt = Not $StopIt
    While $StopIt
        $count += 1;The tooltip and the $count += 1 are just here for visualization, replace with actual macro
        ToolTip($count, 0, 0)
        Sleep(10)
    WEnd
    ToolTip('')
EndFunc

Func PauseMacroFromPoint()
    $Pause = NOT $Pause
    While $Pause
        sleep(10)
    WEnd
EndFunc
