    Most games can't be minimized. If it doesn't tell you how in the docs, then it probably can't be done.

    Sometimes the PC key combinations work. Try something like Alt-Tab (Option-Tab) or Ctrl-Escape. Or how about Cmd-F for fullscreen?

    Is there a way to load it into a window to start with? If so, check in the menu bars at the top to see if there a key combination you can use.

    Maxis games on the mac seem to be notorious for that. Usually cmd+m works to minimize it, but I think that only works on some of their newer works like Spore. I think your screwed on sim city 4.

    Press and Hold the OPTION key, then Open the game. A SimCity 4 Preferences menu will open. Check the box "Play in window". Then Click OK.

    CMD+H for hide works on some games that cannot be minimized
