    Hold DOWN Power switch for about 8 seconds or until the computer shuts down.
    Then hit the Power switch to turn it back on.

    The way I do it which is quick
    Right click start
    Scroll to Shut down and sign out
    Then click >
    Then Shut down
    Mine take about 60-90 seconds

    Don't think you will get it any quicker
    Unless you do as other Poster has put

    May I ask why you need to brute force an instant shutdown/restart?

    The command I posted goes immediately to a plain blue screen with the word "Restarting" and initiates a restart on both my laptop (local) and my desktop when I am remotely connected to it. Substitute /s for the /r and it does an immediate shutdown. Don't know why it isn't working for you. I'll put it in a batch file and see if that makes a difference.

    OK... so in a BAT file it is:
    shutdown.exe /r /t 00
