    I just found this out entirely by accident, and I apologize if this has been posted before. I couldn't find it on a search.

    Apparently you can reboot a Droid 2 by holding Shift/Alt/Del on the slideout keyboard!

    thats pretty cool ... thanks for the tip. i know how to do it thru terminal ... and i issue the 'sync' command just before 'reboot', wondering if this key combo syncs the OS prior to reboot ...

    Great find! I'm surprised we haven't discovered this before.

    Also works when in bootloop and don't want to do a battery pull.

    Cool I was looking for an easy way to reboot, I don't like the reboot apps or widgets.

    I was typing an email and wanted to delete a line. I held Shift/Alt and instead of hitting the back arrow, I went for the Delete key by mistake. I was horrified when my screen went black. But I nearly soiled myself when it rebooted! I tried it one more time on purpose and will never have to pull my battery again!

    Ya I've been using this for a while. Really helps when the phone locks up and you don't want to take the case off for a battery pull.

    Wouldn't it be nice if DF.net implemented a thanks or kudos option for helpful hints or advice?
