    Try shift-space. See this bug
    You can try to manually get around this problem with:
    gconftool-2 -t bool -s /system/osso/af/slide-open false
    That will fake the closing of the slide keyboard that the N800
    doesn't have and get rid of the word completion bar.

    Also in the bug above. You can get around this with the following
    gconftool-2 -t bool -s /system/osso/af/keyboard-attached false
    That'll force the system into thinking there's no keyboard attached.
