I have locked up my display several times. I have tried ctrl+backspace and ctrl+alt+backspace and nothing happens, i thought this would kill xserver? What do you do when the Xserver crashes?
This problem has a two-part solution:
a) What are you doing to lock up X?
b) Stop doing that!
There, problem solved
All kidding aside, what are you doing that's locking up X?
And the only thing that I can add to the previous posters (excellent) suggestions, is that you could try telnetting into your box and unsticking it that way. Kind of a PITA though...
Any special hardware that we should be aware of? (i.e. USB keyboard, KVM switch, etc)
