Always kill switch it?

The article doesn't say if it's a Linux or Windows box, if the former just pull the plug!

If it's a Windows box the next person on the help desk is in for a shit time getting her past the 'Windows didn't shut down properly' etc and if it's hung what's wrong with trying to see if the task manager would run to shut shit down and see if it responds first?
