Putty session locked up? Try Ctrl+q

If your putty session locks up and becomes unresponsive, try hitting Ctrl+q to restore it. I’ve had this problem many times but only today spotted that it happened when I hit Ctrl+s by mistake. According to this post at StackOverflow, Ctrl+s sends the XOFF instruction which results in the lack of response.
