i cant seem to figure out how to get a hotkey to respond while block input is on.
ive also tryed maping all the keys to just return and do nothing but ahk seems to stop responding with that. any help

Try this
; use f11 to block input for 10 secs
f11::
  blockinput,on
  sleep 10000
  blockinput,off
return

; holding appskey and pressing x abort
appskey & x::
  blockinput,off
return

Its in the help (see BlockInput):

Certain types of hook hotkeys can still be triggered when BlockInput is on. Examples include "MButton" (mouse hook) and "LWin & Space" (keyboard hook with explicit prefix rather than modifiers "$#").

I found the "KidKeyLock" application (KKL) very useful. Setup the program to lock mouse clicks, wheel and also whole keyboard.
Then autohotkey can be used to run the program via keyboard shortcut.
Just type "kklquit" (or the password you set up on your own) to end the keyboard/mouse blocking and quit the KKL.

EASY!

Get the KKL app here: http://www.100dof.com/kidkeylock.html

The only thing this does not block is the CTRL+ALT+Del combination, mouse movement and a few keys on my Gyration Remote.

The thread is old, but i should tell you guys, dont install this shity software; it's packed with some kind of malware wich takes room in you ram and it's changing you searchbar and newtabwindow.

This softare doing no harm, but it's anoying and you can only uninstall it completly with a registrycleaner.

Look at Lexikos' solution here.

I use it to lock my computer with a password. Place some blockinput (mouse) in the right places and you are done.
