Possibly recover from a freeze without a reboot
Authored by: windrag on Feb 08, '06 08:13:43AM

And for book owners (I've had ocasional problems with interface freeze), if you get the "dreaded freeze," try closing the lid and wait a minute or so for the sleep light to come on. Then open back up, and most times the macine will wake up and be responsive again. If the sleep light doesn't come on within about 3 minutes, then I'll just reboot, but often this works for me.
