When you’re done working with an application, you should exit, or close it, to conserve your computer’s resources. If an application stops responding while you work, Mac OS X provides you with the option to end the task. When you end a task, you’ll probably lose any unsaved work in the problem application. If the problem persists, you might need to reinstall the application or contact product support to fix the problem.
