Question CTRL+z dilemma

I'm connecting to my Ubuntu 14.04 instance via SSH. Once connected I run an executable for a game I want to play and it starts up fine.

My issue is that, within the game/app, CTRL+z is a hotkey that performs some functionality. Of course when I hit CTRL+z without thinking Linux simply shuts down the app and drops me back to the command line.

Is there any way around this situation?

Thank you!

There is. But it may work for some programs, but not for others.

Try first,

$ set +m
If that doesn't work, try:

$ stty susp undef
Read this for further info: Disabling job control in bash (CTRL-Z)

...or do a web search. Plenty of info out there.
