NAME
       control-alt-delete - event signalling console press of Control-Alt-Delete

SYNOPSIS
       control-alt-delete [ENV]...

DESCRIPTION
       The  control-alt-delete event is generated by the Upstart init(8) daemon when the Control-
       Alt-Delete key combination is pressed on the console.

       Typically this combination is used to safely reboot the machine.

       In  the	default  Upstart  configuration  handling  of  this  event  is	provided  by  the
       /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf task which runs the shutdown(8) tool.

EXAMPLE
       A task to be run on Control-Alt-Delete might use:

	      start on control-alt-delete
