    There really isn't a control-alt-delete key combination on Mac. If an application freezes up/stops responding, you can right click on it's dock icon and click Force Quit, click :apple:>Force Quit and click the Application that isn't responding in the Force Quit window, or the hot key combination is Command (Apple on older keyboard)>Option>Esc.

    there is no command key on my keyboard,i cant click on the icon because when it freezes i cannot see the icons,it usually happens when i try to play a downloaded game and i get the message out of range and all i can see is a black screen,so i have to hold the power button to bring the m/c down and then power the m/c up again,then i delete the game.
    thank you.

    If you have a Windows keybord, the Windows key (the one with the MS logo on it) should act as the Command key.
