ctrl+alt+del
 
Windows has ctrl+alt+del to see what programs are running.
What does Mandrake Linux have?

Is there software that does this?

To my knowledge nothing is running in my box yet the hd is going nuts and a model T would outrun it.

In KDE, that key combo raises the task manager. The specific program is ksysguard. It is like the windows task manager except with different features.

In the command line ps and top also work.

ps -e
or
ps -eF (for lots of detail)

In your GUI, there should also be a utility for this (in Ubuntu, it's "system monitor".

If your system slows to a crawl, it could be "updatedb" running.

In KDE hit ctrl-esc to bring up the KDE System Gaurd as mentioned above.

No it doesn't!

ctrl+alt+delete in KDE raises the logout dialog, not the task manager. The command for the task manager is ctrl+esc.

If it has different features then it is not like it!

run "top" from a console.

linux has the top and ps commands to see what's running: ps -e, ps -ax, etc. ctrl + whatever is a KDE thing, not a linux thing. if someone knows top or ps -ax it will work on any linux. if they only know ctrl+gui key and they're on a linux box that doesn't have kde, they'll be back to square one. :( that's why (imho) linux users should try whenever possible to learn the CLI. :twocents:

The key combination you're looking for is CTRL + ESC.
