I have an issue when trying out one of the example scripts in the autohotkey docs:

http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/scripts/NumpadMouse.htm

When a program like Notepad++ gets focus, the script does not seem to receive key events, and instead the key events seem to be consumed by Notepad++.

Is there a modification to the script that would allow it to receive the events no matter what window was open?

In Windows 7, I needed to make sure AutoHotKey had admin privileges or this behavior would occur... Once it was given admin, other programs were unable to intercept the hotkeys. –  jhnclvr Sep 9 '12 at 1:46
