A post was split to a new topic: I don’t know how to locate SysRq

Well, I did what you said.
my chrome was opened with 3/4 tabs. But after the reboot, when I opened Chrome again, a dialogue showed “Chrome didn’t shutdown correctly. Restore all the tabs?”
I mean, Is it normal? A not gentle shutdown causes the same dialogue to appear when opening Chrome. Should this gentle shutdown cause the same for Chrome?

This only prevents damage to your file system. (which can result in an unbootable system, or worse)

Each program is responsible for keeping its data safe. And chrome obviously does it well.


If chrome did not shutdown correctly after getting the TERM signal (E in the sequence) it either did not react on it or did not have enough time because the I (KILL signal) followed too quickly.
