Usage:

 

REBOOT will log off or shut down the operating system, or completely restart your computer. It normally performs a warm reboot, or a shutdown and restart under Windows.

 

REBOOT defaults to performing a warm boot, with no prompting. The following example prompts you to verify the reboot, then does a warm boot:

 

reboot /v

 

TCC issues the standard commands to shut down other applications and the Windows before rebooting. Windows may prompt you for additional actions, or even ignore the request altogether depending on which processes are running.

 

Options:

 

/HSave everything in memory to your hard disk, and shutdown to save power. The desktop is restored to its original state when the computer is restarted.

 

/KLock the workstation. To unlock, the user must log in.

 

/LLog off Windows, but do not reboot. This option is equivalent to selecting Shutdown from the Start menu, then selecting "Close all programs and log on as a different user" in the shutdown dialog.

 

/MSwitch the display to low power (M0) or shut off the display (M1 -- will not work on all systems). This option will not reboot the computer unless you also include /R.

 

/PLog off Windows and turn off the computer.

 

/RReboots the system. This is the default, but is required if you specify /M0 or /M1 and also want to reboot.

 

/SShut down the system, but do not reboot. This is equivalent to selecting Shutdown from the Start menu, then selecting "Shut down the computer" in the shutdown dialog.

 

/VPrompt for confirmation (Y or N) before acting.

 

/WSave power by turning off the monitor and hard disks. When the computer comes out of standby, the desktop is restored to its original state.
