How to Reboot under Windows Remote Desktop
This is just a quick note for those running a remote desktop and wanting to reboot the connected machine. Under the remote desktop the normal Start menu option Turn off Computer is not available.
To shutdown and restart the remote machine you can either hold down the <CTRL><ALT><END> keys to bring up the Windows Task Manager. Now you can select the shutdown and restart menu options.
An alternative shutdown method is to run the shutdown command from a command prompt.
