This works for me:
$ xdotool key KP_Enter

Enlightenment comes to those who try.
oh wait... yoda says there is no try ...
just do it.
I should clarify ... by not working I mean the enter key is not pressed in the window.
Of course it does. :]

It's being run from a script ( http://pastebin.com/ZyLwNF78 ), which
includes a sleep call. I've run the following:
<power off guest> ; sleep 3 ; <power on guest> ; sleep 4 ; ./vb_install
So, there is, at a minimum of 7 seconds where the keyboard is not
being touched (and closer to 30-45 seconds while the guest machines
powers down and up).
I wonder if it's specific to virtualbox ... I haven't tried to
actually just run it in a terminal window ... something to try later.
