Best Answer

The spell "Petrificus Totalus" is a petrifying spell. If someone cast "Petrificus Totalus" on you, you would freeze up and be unable to move or make sound, though you will be consciously aware of what is going on around you. It is very different from a Stunner, which knocks you out completely.
