    I have Quake3 running right now as I type this.
    Command-tab in the game switches to the finder.

    If that doesn't work, cmd+m will minimize to the dock.

    Some games won't let you minimize in-game. Especially in multiplayer games, it allows people to cheat much easier.

    i did that..but it just made the window small..(increased the resolution) and i could see the desktop..but still the mouse pointer was not going outside the window.

    and about the multiplayer thing..that may be true..coz it has a multiplayer option. although i was playing singleplayer.
