    I have a Dell Server which has Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit. On Restart, it always hangs with a 'Logging Off' Screen. I always have to hard boot. I realize that I should fully investigate and try to resolve the problem. However, until I have time to investigate/resolve the real problem, what is a simple/easy way to Force a Restart without having the 'hang'?

    Note: Forcing a Restart does not cause issue with people accessing/using the Server since the Server is only used by a single user. Therefore, forcing a restart will not cut anyone else off or cause data loss.

    Thanks in Advance.
