Quick Reboot for a locked system

The next time your system crashes, do not hit the power button.

Press and hold down Alt + Sysreq/Print Screen, and type REISUB.

This will save you time waiting for a fsck disk check when the system boots back up. Voila!!

Your system will reboot, after stopping all the programs and syncing and unmounting all drives.
