    Hi Guys,

    I'm loving my rMBP, but am having a few teething troubles, and Google hasn't helped. Well, maybe I'm asking it the wrong questions.

    I ran a program that didn't work, and I couldn't get out. I read that Command-Option-Escape is the way out, but I don't have an Option key. Or if I do it's called something else.

    I have fn, ctrl, alt(with a strange symbol), and cmd(with a 4 leaf clover) in the bottom left corner, and esc in the top left.

    Can someone fill me in on getting out of trouble, please? What is the mac equivalent of ctrl-alt-delete, etc?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    What's the best thing to do if the whole machine locks up?

    If the whole machine locks up, hold the power button down for 8 seconds to reboot. Not much else you can do.
