I understand there is a combination of ALT + PRINTSCREEN keys that gets you out of lockups , but on my PC it just goes into endless loops of taking screenshots , Can't seem to find this information in the help files .

Thanks for that , wonder why I get the endless screen shot loops ?

Because in Gnome/KDE and even Windows, Alt-Print Screen is the keyboard shortcut to take a screen shot. I've not used the SysRq shortcuts, so I'm not sure what you would need to do differently to access SysRq rather than take a screenshot. :-)

Try using the Alt Gr key instead - Alt +Prt Sc does for me a screenshot but Alt Gr doesn't
