Welcome to the Apple user to user assistance forums
the key combination is command(alt)/option(apple)/escape
and it is important to figure out what the problem is - force quitting iPhoto (are any program) can lose data and in iPhoto's case if that data is the database information it can create problems with the library
You might post back with more details on what i going on

Same here. iPhoto is unwilling to quit since a few days. Obviously Force-Quit works but this is not the way I would like it to be. By the way looking in
Terminal - Top
Doesn't show any activity within iPhoto. Anyone knows what is going on?

30-03-09 22:03:18 /Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/MacOS/iPhoto open on /Users/gert_MBP/Library/Application Support/iLifeSlideshow/Effects/Simple3DTransition.qtz: File exists
I just got rid of a Flickr-slideshow or what-is-it-called like and then my iPhoto wouldn't activate anymore. A Force-Quit and a restart and I'm able to do a normal 'quit' again!
Seems everything back to normal. No idea if it's related to Flickr. I saved the full console messages if you're interested.
