press strg +alt +f1 f2 f3 f4 f5...
strg + alt + backspace

if this doesn't take you to a login prompt:

does the system have any active network interfaces and telnet, rsh or ssh working?

you could also connect serial and open a terminal connection

if none of the above works, press the power button

AIX desktop hanging problem

Thank's for your reply Funksen.
Actually here my problem is, when i give click on exit on my front panel then the desktop become's hang.

I will try to telnet that machine as a normal user.
Then verify what are the processes are running by using ps -ef.

After that i killed those processes by using kill -9 pid's.

After giving the kill command, the connection to that machine was closed.
But i won't get the login screen on my desktop.
One thing Funksen, which button i have to use for strg.
Because i am new to AIX.

I am waiting for your reply.

Thanks & Regards,

oh sorry, strg = ctrl Smilie

stop (kill -9) all the CDE-related processes and the X server from remote, restart CDE with /etc/rc.dt start

or just reboot the machine if possible
