First, you have to use correct syntax:

Equality is ==, not =
Did you mean E^z when where you've written e^z?
Functions are written with square brackets, TrueQ[expr], not TrueQ(expr)

TrueQ is a structural (not Mathematica operation).  It will only return
True is the input is explicitly True.

Use Simplify/FullSimplify with appropriate assumptions to check whether
the equality is true.

What do you mean when you say that Mathematica stops evaluating the
notebook?  This is very vague.  Do you get an error message?  Does the
kernel quit?
