Six Seconds to Shut Down

Posted By On March 22, 2005 @ 10:43 AM In Uncategorized | No Comments

Have you ever tried to shut your computer down, only to have it hang on the shut down screen? Or maybe it’s locked up beyond any CTRL-ALT-DEL help. You may find that hitting the power button doesn’t seem to do anything.

If you really need to force a shutdown via the power switch, press it in and hold for 6 seconds. That should turn the computer off.

Only do this as a last resort—you should always try to shutdown your computer properly.
