Now there's a funny question ;-p

Seriously, I believe there is no real provision for OOB signals in
Windows keyboard input handling. So, down in the depths of the OS
libraries, someone will have to poll for keystrokes that are supposed to
break things out of the current contemplation.

For a demonstration, create a java process on XP that populates half a
gig heap of Lots Of Small Things, then System.gc() in a tight loop. Try
to get control of your computer again - good luck!
