Very good at quitting background and faceless applications. Must be manually updated each time an appl' is launched. Quitting Finder merely relaunches it. One appl' refuses to quit via "StopStart" (KDX Client) Getting APPLESCRIPT error: "Can't make contents of «class datC» of «class seDR» of «class tabW» id 4 of «class scrV» id 3 of window id 1 into type string. (-1700)"

I assume there's a difference between Quitting and Stopping/Pausing.

I really can't see the benefit of this application. Instead of clicking on this application icon just click on the icon of Activity Monitor application, select the process and click on "Quit Process" button.

Compare App Stop (at 0.8). Stable, intuitive, puts up menubar icon with drop down list to control stopping and starting.

I downloaded it but when I typed in the name of an active application, it did not recognize it. There is no help, no documentation to tell you how to use it.

A classic. See the screenshot to become a believer. This is a wrap around a wrap around a wrap. The Unix API 'kill' admits of 'signals' that can be sent to processes, among others: SIGINT - interrupts a process SIGCONT - continues a process Most of this is moot anyway, as OS X adequately puts processes to 'sleep' when a Mac is closed or put to sleep somehow - and automatically resumes these processes when the computer is awakened again. One naturally encourages the developer to continue his forays into the operating system and one naturally wishes him all the best, but this one is a bit thin - someone on the order of a nanometer or less. Sorry!

Why not just take your hands off the keyboard ? How do you pause something like Photoshop or Flash when they generaly jusy sit there 'paused' anyway, waiting for user input.

What does it really do, provide a GUI for issuing "kill -STOP ..." and "kill -CONT ..." commands so you don't have to do it from Terminal.app?
