Jetway's 915P-TWIN Mobo: One PC, Two Users

Be Careful When Shutting Down Windows

We found shutting down Windows to be an event that can easily cause trouble with the other MagicTWIN user. If one user decides to shut the system down, the other console will receive a warning message that shows a 25 second count down. During this period, this console’s user may abort the shutdown process.

If she does not abort, e.g. because of being absent, the system will continue and shutdown as planned. At this point, all files that have not been saved will be lost !

As long as two users are working on the system it makes much sense to confirm restarts or a system shutdown before pressing buttons.
