    Hi,

    Recently I got stuck in Front Row: I saw a black screen, and there was no way to exit the program. I thought my machine was frozen, but the sound controls, the eject button, and the mouse still responded. I just couldn't leave the application with Cmd. Q, or ESC, or use the tab key to switch to another program.

    Is there a way to kill an app using a key combination, kinda like what you would do in Windows by pressing Ctrl. Alt. Del. and opening the task manager?
