Attempting C-c C-RET gives me the following:

C-c RET is undefined

Any thoughts on what is happening here?

You don't say where you are doing that. What's the current mode?

But it looks like your terminal does not support the key sequence C-RET, and so treats it as RET.

Try C-h k C-RET. It will likely tell you what RET is bound to.

    Where can I find what escape keys emacs expects for each key combination? I can configure these in my terminal emulator, but I don't know what to set them to.
