I want to deselect the table and have the Selection Tool active, without touching the mouse.
How about Cmd Sh A then tap V?

There must be a Shortcut for unselecting everything and have the Selection Tool active, right?
Nope, there isn't. All the law-abiding people do as Barb suggested. If you really badly need 'single kb command' solution, then:
1. copy this two-liner to simple text editor, save it as jsx script.
app.menuActions.item("$ID/Deselect All").invoke(); app.menuActions.item("$ID/Selection Tool").invoke();
2. 'Install' it, define kb shortcut.
3. use it
Tested on Win7 / CS6. Should work on Mac too, I hope...
All the law obedient people...
I hope I didn't say something completely out of tune? Edited that a bit... My English is just above average, sorry for that... Not native.
Ha! I loved it. It's a very apt description of me!
Well, I must confess then - that's not about me
And that is what makes the forums so great. We all work together, and if one of us can't figure something out, someone else can.
