There is currently no action to deselect everything, so before you can create a shortcut for it, you have to make such an action. The right way to do that is using an ipelet. I'm attaching one that does exactly this and sets a shortcut for it. Place the file in one of your Ipelet directories (Help->Show configuration->ipelets).
I'll also add the function in the next release to Ipe itself.
