CTRLALTDEL(8)		   Linux Programmer's Manual		 CTRLALTDEL(8)

NAME
       ctrlaltdel - set	the function of	the Ctrl-Alt-Del combination

SYNOPSIS
       ctrlaltdel hard | soft

DESCRIPTION
       Based  on  examination of the linux/kernel/sys.c	code, it is clear that
       there are two supported functions that the  Ctrl-Alt-Del	 sequence  can
       perform:	 a  hard reset,	which immediately reboots the computer without
       calling sync (2)	and without any	other preparation; and a  soft	reset,
       which  sends the	SIGINT (interrupt) signal to the init process (this is
       always the process with PID 1).	If this	option is used,	the  init  (8)
       program	must  support  this feature.  Since there are now several init
       (8) programs in the Linux community, please consult  the	 documentation
       for the version that you	are currently using.

       ctrlaltdel is usually used in the /etc/rc.local file.
