I had the same problem when I first starting playing (couldn't figure out what num pad was). Anyway, press the + button that is on the right side of your keyboard (NOT the one near backspace) and space at the same time.

I've got a related question:

I'm playing on a laptop, which doesn't have a numpad.  Is there an alternative key combination for emergency warp to the Numpad + and space?

If you're adventurous, and willing to compile the code yourselves,
you could do the following.

a) download the source tarball, extract it (or get CVS version)
b) edit src/sc2code/setup.c
c) find the bit that says:       
       // new temporary melee keys 2002/11/22

Below that, you can change the key mappings yourselves. Here's how
my bit looks right now:

...
     // new temporary melee keys 2002/11/22
     // mapped as left, right, thrust, ?, ?, fire, special, ?, ?
     KeyboardInput[0] = CaptureInputDevice
     (
           // CreateJoystickKeyboardDevice (SK_LF_ARROW, SK_RT_ARROW, SK_UP_ARROW, 0, 0, SK_RT_SHIFT, SK_CTL, 0, 0x1b)
           CreateJoystickKeyboardDevice (SK_LF_ARROW, SK_RT_ARROW, SK_UP_ARROW, 0, 0, SK_LF_SHIFT, SK_CTL, SK_HOME, SK_END)
     );
     KeyboardInput[1] = CaptureInputDevice
     (
           CreateJoystickKeyboardDevice ('s', 'f', 'e', 0, 0, 'q', 'a', 0, 0x1b)
     );
...


As you can see, quite simple :-)

Note, the last two keys actually are labelled 'shift1' and 'shift2'. The latter is
the actual escape sequence key. I have that mapped to 'end' right now :-)
I have removed the spacebar from this equasion too btw, since I have
a laptop that doesn't seem to have a keypaad '+' in a usable location.

I've also modified the code in battle.c a bit to make pressing the 'space' key in conjunction with the 'rightshift' key unnessecary. Here's the relevant bit, starting at line 88. Commented out section (between /* and */) is
the old code. Note the checks performed in there look mostly unnessecary
(we've already established the player can run away) but I may be wrong.
Definitly a 'works for me' situation ;-)


                             if (CanRunAway && ( InputState & DEVICE_RIGHTSHIFT ))
                                 /*
                                         && cur_player == 0
                                         && ((PlayerControl[cur_player] & HUMAN_CONTROL)
                                         || (InputState = GetInputState (NormalInput)))
                                         && (InputState & DEVICE_RIGHTSHIFT )
                                         )
                                   */



Then proceed to step d) - compile it using build.sh

Of course, if you've never compiled anything before, don't bother. This
thing is hard to compile on picky distributions like SuSe / Debian
(SuSe more so  than Debian, debian only complains about tempnam, SuSe shows worse problems.)

I fixed the emergancy warp on my laptop.. the trick is to hold the space bar down first, then tap the Fn and + key a few times.. that seems to work for me, hopefully this helps
