    No idea how putting computer to sleep would close frozen application, or help unfroze it!!!
    Decades ago, when my Windows had frozen, I put it to sleep and then woke it up so as to defrost it.

    You can do it right now, just to see what it does.

    But it is irrelevant, I can't try it until a freeze! Shortcut works, but whether or not it would help with freeze (about to see).

    Hello @elbmek,

    If it is, and you want to remove it, use this in a REG file, but check the Registry Key FIRST . . .
    Code:
    
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell\KillNotResponding]
    I hope this helps.
    I didn't install that program, why are you bringing this up?

    Is that a scene from art work by Pieter Brueghel, the Elder or Younger?
