The Wikipedia article is pretty informative and gives functions I had no idea of that could be quite useful, too.

But while completing typing it unmounted all the drives and terminated the tasks but it doesn't restart my computer. I have to manually press the power button to shutdown it.
No. But you must hold down ALT and PrtScn (also labeled SysReq on some keyboards) throughout. That's why it takes both hands to successfully use.ElMugroso wrote:Does it matter upper or lower case in REISUB?
Tend to agree here.Thinker wrote:Is this recovery? All data will be lost. This is of no use for a common user. "Safe way to restart" is better name for this article.
Also note that CTRL-ALT+BKSP will also do that. Have had both fail, though, forcing use of REISUB anyway. (BTW: REISUO will (IIRC) shut the machine off, not restart. Sometimes, if you're just this side of throwing the machine out the window, that might be the wiser choice.)Thinker wrote:Pressing Alt+Print Scr + K will cause logout by Killing X-server. Although this will not save any data but it is much better and time saving than REISUB
