My son was playing Factorio on my LL 3.8 laptop. It froze during the stage of joining a multiplayer game. I tried Ctrl-C and it did not work. I also tried Alt-tab and Ctrl-Alt-Delete.

Finally I did a hard shutdown using the power button. This worked, but it was very much a last resort. My question is, what should I have done (if anything) instead of shutting down with power button? Is there another combination of keys which should have worked to force-quit the game? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Using Linux Lite for everything now. I put it on my desktop and my laptop. Woohoo!

Hi there - what settings are your games running on and does your laptop crash on all of your games, or just a couple of them?

In addition to this, do you know the temps of your GPU as very often this can lead to crashes during games when the video card is working hard.

I hope this helps

Lol, another thread brought back to life!

Was nevered answered though.
So, OP could have presse CTRL-F1 or CTRL-F2 to access a command line.
Logged in using username/password and typed "reboot".

There's more complex procedures but I won't bother the dead more then needed. ;)
