Can not live without. Some times, force to quiet from the computer dont respond. However, with Ctrl Alt Delete app works every time. Also, its faster than any other process.

Very Good but Settings problem

It works as advertised and has a low memory consumption but there is no obvious way to change the App settings when you go into settings. Any setting changes I make get erased when using the Back button which is the only button available. There is no Save button. Maybe I’m missing something. Anyway, I can’t set it to start at log in...

I love this handy little time saver!

Must have for people who push their Macs with a lot of open programs. It really is handy!
