    Wait for it ...

    If that doesn't work - it will be a long night and a hard lesson learned.

    Yes ... it's Apple's fault the third-rate office suite froze on you before you thought to save your half-finished assignment the night before it's due.

    Hmm.

    Can you select all the text and copy it? Maybe paste it elsewhere? Is the Mac frozen or just Open Office?

    Yeah, that is likely the best solution. OP: Even though the paper is due tomorrow your best solution is to wait.

    Anyone: Does OpenOffice make caches or AutoSave? One could possibly recover the document from those...

    EDIT: Just read above that it got recovered! Don't count on this luck in the future! :)

    KPs can be caused by software.

    I wasn't aware OOo offered recovery ... good to know.

    People are trying to help out, and it is definitely not Apple's fault that you forgot to save your document.

    Glad recovery worked for you, but hopefully you learn to save your documents more often. I have had different macs for over a year now and have never experienced a kernel panic. Do apps crash? Of course... Is Apple perfect? Of course not...
