Remote Desktop keyboard shortcuts within another Remote Desktop session

I have a remote desktop connection (from my home) to the company's server. On this I opened a Remote Desktop Connection Manager and inside this connect to a specific server.

I was busy copying a file but this task never ends. So I kill the process and now I have a blue screen and no more taskbar. Very frustrating. When I try CTRL+ALT+END (=CTRL+ALT+DEL) this is executed on the main server and not the server which gives me the blue screen. I don't know if I'm clear.

I know I should have keep Task Manager open and type explorer.exe into the File->Run but I close it.

Try "Ctrl + Shift + Esc" and hope the "frozen" server answer.

No problem. Ctrl+Shift+Esc invokes the Task Manager directly. Always. –  Luiz Angelo Dec 6 '12 at 20:49

I would probably try to reboot the host using psexec

psexec \\targetIp cmd -u username -p password

shutdown -r

then just keep pinging it until it comes back up. then attempt to reestablish your connection.
