How to restart Windows from a Remote Desktop session

This is one that stumped me for a couple of years when the schools I worked for switched from macs to Windows machines.“  I loved the ability to use Remote Desktop to control machines.“  The problem I frequently ran into was the inability to restart the machines. When you clicked on the “Start” menu, the only options were to “Log Off” or “Disconnect” – no “Reboot”!

The solution is easy: all you need to do is hit CTRL-ALT-END, then Shutdown, and then choose the Restart option.
