Simple. Set up a hotkey.

Tell ya what:
Download/Register/Use the hotkey component at http://www.jwcs.net/vbactivex/. If it does what you want, I'll provide the source for creating your own hotkeys. Zip contains info on using the component, it's really quite simple.

Note: Don't accept an answer if it isn't what you want!

The code for the hotkey is system-wide only. It can't be modified for only one app.

I'm looking into other methods of monitoring the keyboard or stopping the shortcut. I should be back sometime tomorrow (7/29). If not, then post another message to remind me.
