    i've had warcraft 3 freeze on me a couple times, and the only way i've gotten out of it was to hard shutdown my powerbook (hold down the power button)

    is there any other way i could be safer when getting out of this jam?

    Holding down option + command (apple) + escape should bring up the Force Quit Applications window, then you can choose the appropriate application to quit, if the keyboard is still active.

    ssh in from another machine and kill the process?

    Could you use Exposè to get to another app and then cmd+tab+q to warcraft to quit it? I know that neocell already gave you the best advice, but I was just wondering if that would work as well.

    that's what i do. sometimes the force quit window doesn't appear infront (it pops up behind with some full screen apps).
