I wonder if anyone else has tried rebooting a Windows 8 machine remotely yet. This is probably not a common occurrence yet, though it someday may be, and it turned out to be quite a debacle. Obviously we all know that in order to reboot a machine, we have to access the charms bar, go to settings and then power, then restart. This turned out to be almost impossible for me to accomplish remotely using ultravnc, as I could only see a small portion of the screen, and the charms kept vanishing from the screen while I was trying to get to settings. Is there another simple way to restart the machine that I am missing, that does not rely on mouse gestures, or 3rd party applications?
