comment OSX : Cancel the shutdown sequence
Shutdown is implemented by the loginwindow process, killing the loginwindow process would stop the shutdown. But this logs you out it's not really much better.. Back in OS9 you could just open an application and it would stop the whole process!

comment What is wired memory?
More specifically wired memory is memory that cannot be paged. Any other application have its memory placed in the swap file but wired memory always remains in the real ram. Some of the most common users of wired memory are visualization applications (Parallels, VMWare) and the mac os x operating system. Also don't worry if you don't have much free memory, inactive memory is as good as free because it can be reallocated to any application that needs it. Lots of page in's and out's are a good sign that you need more ram though
