    Try typing Command-Option-Escape for a force quit. (Equivalent of MS Task Manager).
    You can force a hard shutdown by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds.
    All the specs are available by pulling down the Apple Menu to About this Mac and hitting the More button.

    Pull down the Apple Menu to System Preferences and find the Users Accounts prefs panel.

    okey back to my questions,
    the Mac is always hung even I Option-Escape, it won't shutdown and I need to press the swtich off button, I've try many times  and it wont last for 30 minutes at least, I've try watching dvd, that worse I insert the DVD and after few sec's it hung again and again..

    Yeah I see the User accounts under system Preferences, but how do I register new user?

    Accepted Solution

    Sorry, but I am not at my Mac at the moment. If you go to Accounts it should be obvious how to add a new one.

    Also, I suggest that you open Disk Utility in the Utilities folder and run REPAIR PERMISSIONS while booted from the hard drive.

    After you have done that, insert the OS Install CD and reboot holding down the c key. Once it has booted from the CD, pull down one of the menues to Disk Utility and this time use Disk First Aid to repair the drive. (Do NOT run repair permissions while booted from the CD).
