SSH Remote Terminal

I have a couple questions about using a SSH Remote Terminal:

1) When using vi to edit a file, I could not exit the program. When not in edit mode, I hit "q" and I saw "Recording..." at the bottom of the screen for a second and that was the only reaction. It did not send me to a prompt. Also when I hit "w" to save, it did not save. I couldn't CNTRL-C out because that just brought up a drop-down menu in the remote shell program I was using. Any ideas why?

2) Is there a way to force the machine to reboot from a remote shell assuming you have root access?

Thanks a bunch for any help... It sucks being a

Ignore question #1. I'm a retard and a half. However, I still am interested in the answer to question #2. Is there any way to make the machine restart from a command prompt?
