Call me crazy. Sometimes I want to shutdown my servers.
After loading up the Windows Server “8” beta on some of my test systems, I was a little perplexed as to how I should be shutting them down – either logged on locally or remotely.
Humm…. From a command line – I can always run my trusty command:
SHUTDOWN /S /T 3
That gives me a 3 second window before things get shut down. But without my traditional start menu – how should I do it via the GUI?
Windows_Key + i
That seems to be the fastest way to pull up your settings – including the power button for shutting / restarting your server.
You could also do a three-finger-salute with CTRL-ALT-DEL and choosing it from the bottom right corner.
I’ll stick with either my command line (if I am working in one or the awesome new PowerShell) or I’ll use the slightly easier Windows_Key + i
