Google usually can :)

Googling for "LaTeX page break" returns the first link to
where you find the commands \pagebreak and \nopagebreak
and the last link at the first results page
provides you with a tip “Getting rid of orphans and widowed words”.

Try this, and if it doesn't help send a short example (tex and dvi or
pdf attached).

Happy TeXing!
