i was in a game with my alt, a few turns in and i pressed escape to bring up the in game menu in order to quit the game as i had so lost but the escape key didnt do anything, did not bring up the menu. i closed pox with the x top right, it closed right away so i dont think pox had crashed. also after the escape key did not work i pressed end turn which worked and changed it to their turn so the client was functioning. when back in windows i opened up the windows start menu and pressed escape to check my escape key worked - it did and the start menu closed. made it look like i ragequitted but i didnt, something i do at times tho.
