Try pressing ESC half a dozen times... Once you get to the shutdown
confirmation, ESC cancels the shutdown. So this would have a 50/50
chance of working, depending on how deep you are in the Myth menus.
(Although you could set it to send an odd number of ESCs, so that if
it left you at the main menu the first time, you can hit it a second
time and it will...)
The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
