How to stop sh run on cisco pix/asa

I have tried ctrl-c, ctrl-z and esc but none of these keys work when trying to stop when performing show run or any show command. it's a small thing, but really annoying as i have to go space space space all the way.
please mentioned for both pix and asa if they are different

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If terminal pager is set , you can use "q" to break / return back to device prompt. This is same in ASA and PIX
