stopping jobs

nope, just do

kill 3
or, if you like

kill %3
that works (in bash at least)

Another alternative is to run 'top'.

I'm assuming your distro has 'top' installed.

'top' will list all the running process in realtime and the defualt kill signal I believe is '15'.
Read the 'top' man page (man top) and that'll getya going.
Another thing you can do ( just for the sake of learning) is from a command line---: kill -l
That'll list all the SIG*** options for killing a process, etc.

I hope I presented this so its clear and it does'nt seem like Martian hieroglyphics!
