typing exit and hitting the return key should work. Without trying
it, I'm not sure if this will take you into a reboot or simply
close the DOS window. If the latter, you may need to use Ctrl Alt
Delete to open the Task Manager to select reboot. In case you
aren't familiar with this, it means pressing and holding down
first the Ctrl key at the bottom left of the keyboard, followed
by the Alt key closeby (also press and hold), and finally the
the Delete key on the right, above the arrow keys.
If the Task Manager doesn't open, allowing you to select a
reboot, repeating Ctrl-Alt-Delete should initiate a reboot
even without the Task Manager.
Finally, realistically, when all that is open is a DOS window,
without any processes running (the hard drive indicator light,
usually yellow, will not be flashing, it will be unlit) it's
actually quite safe to simply hit the power button on your
computer. Simply turn it off and back on again to reboot.
Let me know if this resolves your concerns, and I'll post it
as a formal answer...
