    Is there an Apple equivalent of MS' ctrl-alt-del to get an option to stop a particular task when the site is not responding? or what do you do when the pinwheel spins endlessly?

    Also if an application is causing the spinning pinwheel (a.k.a the Spining Beach Ball of Death) you can right click the application on your dock and select 'Force Quit' from that menu to kill the process.
