Re: Emergency Shutdown in WinXP

Holding down the CTRL key while pressing the "Shutdown" button, which
invokes the "Emergency Shutdown" dialog, is not a feature the Novell
Client has ever supported to my knowledge.

The closest thing that comes to mind for performing that kind of
shutdown "quickly" would be to invoke a utility via a shortcut, such
as XP's SHUTDOWN.EXE or Sysinternals' PsShutdown
(, specifying
the option to "force" applications closed (i.e. don't wait for data
save). wrote:
