    And when your screen/X is 'locked up because of some game or some thing you were doing, what good is Google to you then?

    Didn't your computer come with a reset or power button? If you know you'll need the key combo then activate it.

    You learn how to kill a misbehaving process and kill just that one instead of everything you have running. And if you don't know how to do that yet, reset and find out.

    This thread makes me think many people just switched from rebooting in windows to restarting X as the main way to solve problems. But it's not a solution, it's a (bad) workaround.

    Why does the experienced long time user have to adjust for the newbie who will be soon gone anyway?
    Because it benefits the experienced user, working quickly with complicated shortcuts on a functioning system the most.

    I was in Intrepid yesterday and was downloading a PDF file in Firefox when I lost both panels so no way to recover than the keyboard - I was glad of CAB to return me to the login screen rather than using a cold boot - that cured the problem. Why Firefox had a funny moment I don't know but CAB saved my time and having to get up to operate the power button.

    if jaunty is going to be faster then a cold boot is not going to be a problem

    I've had to use reisub to get back to normal where CAB would probably have done the trick. And ctrl alt F1 got me nowhere. How do you enable it in Jaunty.

    re-enable it by setting the DontZap xorg.conf option to False

    get rid of it? Why?? Whenver I run into a problem where my computer locks up or i hit some strange error that keeps me from doing a current task pressing that saves the day. Its a great alternative to restarting in windows.

    And it also helps with my lazyiness when signing out
