two questions laptop freeze and excel

  Newuser2533 23:16 14 Sep 2003

When my computer freezes I do Ctrl,Alt,Del and it always sorts itself. If it doesn't I have the option of switching it off at the mains.
When a laptop does the same thing, what are my options as after pressing Ctrl, Alt, Del it stays frozen for some time.
This happened to my daughter and she had to be back at college within five minutes.
I think what I'm saying also is ....can the laptop be left for 5 hours after it freezes without doing any damage.

I have just transcribed some of the 1841 census onto Excel and unfortunately have done 400 names in capitals when they should be in lower case.
Is there a way of changing the names into lower case all in one operation.

Sorry to be a complete pain.

Or remove the power lead and the battery, I've had to resort to this in the past.
