Hi,
I recently had the rare "lock-up" of my system (BLAG 70K). I pressed the reset button on the tower to fix the problem, since mouse and keyboard were seemed to be completely non-responsive.

I am wondering if there is a way to recover from this problem without restarting? Like a keyboard combo that would bring some control back?

Thanks,
Mike H

Well -- if you're REALLY locked up, you are fubard. I either use Ctl+Alt+Fn, such as control+alt+a function key.. low one like 1. if that get me a login, great. I shutdown with
Code:
shutdown -r now[quote]

Sometimes a Ctl+Alt+Bksp[backspace] will kill X, and your Xwindows, allowing an instant re-login.

I thought it was ctrl-alt-delete.. I guess you might need to edit that back into the /var/inittab file?

Ctrl-alt-backspace can do the trick too.

Yup, Ctrl-ALt-Del works fine if you are at a terminal screen Doesn't seem to work from X though.
