To enter comment mode in Writer one can use a shortcut Ctrl + Alt + N.

However, to end the comment I seem to be forced to utilize my mouse.

How can I avoid the mouse?

Hit Esc.

This will end your comment and jump you back into the main document area right where you left off.

I must be getting old... never considered escape. Tried enter, ctr+enter, tab, ctrl+shift+enter... then got frustrated and clicked away. Escape seems like "Cancel the comment" keystroke – Mikhail Jan 10 '12 at 15:05

Found a new "escapeless" way to exit -- Ctrl + Page Up or down. Not sure about why this works, but I find it easier than hitting Esc, which is quite out of the normal reach
