What OS is this?  If Windows, ESC interrupts a running command, and is not 
itself a command: rather it generates a software interrupt.

I don't see how you can send anything from a script window without using 
either a mouse or the keyboard, and ESC is on your keyboard and also on 
the Misc menu.

So what exactly are you trying to do?
