Reboot from the Command Line

I often use a remote desktop connection to work on my desktop from my laptop. This is very handy, but there are some limitations. One such limitation is the lack of ability to reboot the machine you are remoting into. The option is not available within the start menu when you are remoting. There are some instances, though, when you really need to reboot. If you find yourself in this situation, you can reboot via the command line. Here is the command to do it.

shutdown /r /t 01

Happy Remoting!
