    Re: Terminal commands for rebooting

    Ok, I know this will seem like a dumb question, but how do I type in alt+SysRq reisub? Does is have to be in the terminal or just anywhere? Do I hold down the alt key while typing that in or is it a terminal command?

    Re: Terminal commands for rebooting

    When your computer won't respond to normal key presses or mouse actions, try to press a key sequence while pressing

    alt + SysRq all the time

    r e i s u b (slowly, one key each time for about one second)

    See this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key

    OK, I completely forgot about the SysRq key. So hold down Alt + SysRq and slowly type in r e i s u b? And this won't clear all my data, will it? (Sorry if you are rolling your eyes, I just need to make absolutely sure of everything!) Thanks.

    On the contrary, in a locked system it is likely to save data, that might be destroyed by a hard reset.

    Did you read the link? It explains more than can be written in this conversation. And you can find more links about the same subject in order to understand how it works.
