Possibly recover from a freeze without a reboot

You could also do Control-Eject, then hit 's'. That shuts down (I think), 'r' reboots, and Enter sleeps.

These keyboard shortcuts are not quite right. Ctrl+Eject+Enter shuts down. I don't know about the other shortcuts.

CajunLuke, I'm glad you mentioned that CTRL-Eject, then s, can shut down the Mac. I see that CTRL-Eject brings up the "Restart|Sleep|Cancel|Shutdown" dialog box on my Mac, even though I use a MS Natural Multimedia Wireless keyboard that lacks a dedicated Eject key. CTRL-[the key I assigned to be the Eject key] works for me, though, and now that I know it, that frees up one of the other keys. I can assign it to something else! Thanks!
