that' s the normal behavior of a TSO Interactive session
the screen is locked until the execution of any process has terminated

You must live with it,
evaluate if the REXX script can be run s a BATCH job step

If your program entered a loop, you can interrupt it by hitting the PA1 key (PA stands for Program Attention).

PA1 key can be located in different place on the keyboard, depending on which emulator you use.
