Normally there is no special trick to it. You just push the power button. There seems to be some way, probably described in the ACPI standard that I have never read, that the OS can do it on modern machines. My new PC BIOS can allegedly be configured to require that the power button be held down for 4 seconds before it turns off, otherwise it just goes to "sleep". I don't enable that feature, but I do find that when the system is in the "press any key to continue" halted state it seems to ignore the power button. So I press any key and let it reset and start to reboot. Then the power button works. This is indeed a little annoying. I would like to understand why it does this.
