We sometimes connect to displays that go blank after startup. We know that it is a display compatibilty problem because if we connect a compatible display, we can see the output. What I'd like to do is to shut it down without having to hold down the power button. It is a turnkey system where I have to find the key to unlock the cabinet and a second key to open the front of the computer to access the power button. It would be easier if I could use a key sequence to shutdown.
When a demo has finished, very often the bigger fancier monitors are pinched and set up for other demos for the next day. I know the machines are still on because I can see the flashing lights in the locked server room. It is the end of the day, the key holder has gone home, how do I shut the machines down.
On Windows XP, I used to be able to type Windows U U and the machine would shut down. Is there an equivalent sequence on Windows 10? When I type Windows U it goes into the search. I can't figure out what the key sequence is for the poweroff button in the menu.
Edit One key sequence is Windows Tab Down 5 times Return Down Return. Is there a better one?
