Try this
$(document).keypress( function (e) {

    if (e.which == 97 )

        alert('works');

});

<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery.hotkeys-0.7.8.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery.js"></script>
Wrong order of inclusion, should be:
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/jquery.hotkeys-0.7.8.js"></script>

"\t"
function response() {

	$('[name="input1"]').val($('[name="input1"]').val() + '\t');

}
