<CTRL-ALT> SYSRQ S
<CTRL-ALT> SYSRQ U
<CTRL-ALT> SYSRQ B
Is the best method if a session hangs and you get stuck. The "U" will make the kernel attempt to remount all mounted filesystems in read-only mode, which will keep the disk from arbitrarily writing data to disk.
Think *magic sub* to remember the letters to use.
Keep asking questions and keep learning.
