comment Black screen on LogMeIn and Apple Remote Desktop on Mac OS X Server 10.6.6 - which process to kill?
OK - I found the vmware unix command to suspend the virtual machine. Executed that and then your command. It did not kill all processes in the current user, it only put up the loginwindow without affecting the user processes. It did restore video. Thanks a million. Now I have to figure out why this black screen condition happens in the first place and how to make it not happen...

comment Black screen on LogMeIn and Apple Remote Desktop on Mac OS X Server 10.6.6 - which process to kill?
The reason I am trying to isolate the single process or processes that control the video feed is because I have Windows XP running within vmware (owned by the logged in user) that controls the security cameras in the place. I would like to avoid abruptly killing that virtual Windows instance and having to reinstall that or reconfigure all the cameras and such.

If I read this correctly, it lists all running processes with extended attributes, selects the ones with loginwindow and within those the ones with root, then reverses the selection to all but those previously selected. If I understand the awk expression correctly, it will isolate the PID of selected processes. Those PIDs will be unconditionally killed. When I execute the command with xargs followed by less I get the PID of loginwindow and nothing else. That would kill any processes owned by any currently logged in user. I would like to figure out which process controls the video feed...
