AutoSuggestMenu - Enter Key to Select?

I've got a web site built using EnTech's free AutoSuggestMenu control.

It works pretty well (much better than I had expected from a free control), but the users are asking if there is a way to make it select the first item with the just enter key.

Right now, you have to "down arrow" once to get the focus on a row in the list, then hit enter. If you just hit enter without the down arrow, your partial entry gets left in the entry field.

The user request revolves around typing enough characters to get the list down to a single item. They'd like to be able to just hit enter at that point.

Has anybody made this work?
