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.

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!

It could be better

I gave this app 2 stars simply because I wasn't very satisfied with the responsiveness from the application to come up when ctrl + alt + delete were pressed to activate a task manager type interface similar to that of what is on a Windows based system. Though it does have an interface that is similar it didn't however come up with the hotkey command. Perhaps though there is additional settings that I need to configure to enable better response I overall was not satisfied enough to keep this program on my mac due to these issues.
