Photoshop CS6: Active Dialogue focus problem on Win7

When I have a menu dialogue window open (e.g. Layer Style, Image Size, Fade) and I (accidentally) click somewhere else in the programm, I cannot close said dialogue by hitting "Enter" or "Esc" on the keyboard.

(Example: I double click on the layer thumbnail to open Layer Styles, but actually accidentally I hit the thumbnail three times - then I try to close the Layer Styles dialogue by hitting the Esc key, but it doesn't work. I have to click cancel with the mouse cursor).

nobody else has this problem?? It's really annoying. I'm a fast worker. Not being allowed to hit enter to close a dialogue window slows me down a lot.

It would help if you told us which product you were using, which version, and which OS version.

it happens with mouseclicks as well as when using the pen (graphic tablet).
