So you can't log in via telnet even? That's a bummer... It's got a
battery, right? And you can hook it up to a power supply? Disconnect both,
and that should bring it down, unless I'm missing something. I doubt that
those have an internal "standby" battery. The other thing would be if you
can hook a keyboard up to it (a real type 4/5/6) and hit stop-a for the ok
prompt. Either one of those should work, I'd think.
