List of Process status codes and meanings?

Hi there everyone, I'm trying to get this rather troublesome (and poorly made, I might add) game to work correctly, and right now it has frozen to a black screen with a frozen cursor. I can't figure out how to shutdown X, but while this game is frozen as it is, I might as well figure out what the process status SL+ means. If anyone has a link to a list of process status codes and their meanings, your input would be very welcomed.

Open a terminal console and at the prompt run: man ps.
In PROCESS STATE CODES section it explains:
S Interruptible sleep (waiting for an event to complete)
L has pages locked into memory (for real-time and custom IO)
+ is in the foreground process group
