On PC keyboard, you can use the Magic SysRq sequences:

ALT+SysRq and press R-E-I-S-U-B in that sequence. This will switch the 
keyboard from Raw to translated mode, send SIGTERM signal to all processes 
(except init), send SIGKILL signal, sync all mounted filesystems, unmount them 
and finally reboot.
