Let me jump in here and say that it is worth learning to use the watchdog timer 
feature, it gives you a clean shutdown if there is even a glimmer of life left 
in the kernel. Even when the usual sysreq magic doesn't work. I have a program I 
can put on a site somewhere, but it's so simple you can probably write it as 
fast as a download, a few lines does the job.

Works for me.
