    New Mac noob user.

    Playing in iPhoto for a bit last night. Then couldn't quit iPhoto. Still can't. And I can't even shut down to reboot because it just tells me iPhoto is still running and that I need to shut it down first.

    Any suggestions? wtfyaimstupid

    Sometimes I just hold the power button for 3 seconds if something hangs. It usually screws up other things anyway so a reboot is inevitable.

    Don't do this unless you have no other options.

    Definitely try "force quit" first.

    if an app is not responding just right click the icon in the dock and it will give you the option to force quit too.
