After the lens retracts in ALT/Playback, it's impossible to go back to recording mode and I have to restart CHDK.
If I let any of my CHDK equipped camera's idle while in <ALT> mode (with the camera in playback mode), the lens retracts after 1 minute per the Canon menu setting. If I want to go back into shooting mode, I simply press the ALT key to exit CHDK's <ALT> mode and then half press the shutter button to put the camera into shooting mode. If I want to use CHDK again, I press the ALT key again.
Unfortunately, when I press ALT button to exit ALT, camera simply shuts down.

If you are using the default option - PLAYBACK - then if you hold the PLAYBACK key for more than about one second, it will revert to its original function. In your case, that most likely means shutting down the camera. Try doing a really fast press (tap&release) and see if you can exit ALT that way.
