I don't believe I couldn't find the answer to that simple problem anywhere on the net (probably my search expression wasn't the best one).
I am installing windows on qemu, but I have no idea how to send "ctrl-alt-del" to windows, as ctrl-alt always toggles between mouse focus in virtual machine and mouse focus on normal (X11) desktop.
How do I do it?

Cheers,
geta

older versions of qemu didnt have ctrl alt del as a feature IIRC. but i just tried it on my qemu 0.7.0 and it worked... but i tried in a linux guest OS... windows im not sure about. I have windows xp running under qemu on another machine... ill give it a try and see if it works.

I did find a way for using ctrl-alt-del directly in qemu (0.7.0): switching to full screen mode first (ctrl-alt-del) catches this combination withing the virtual machine. This does not work for other combinations however (i.e. ctrl-alt-f1, ctrl-alt-backspace). For the other combinations one still has to switch over to the qemu monitor (ctrl-alt-2) and enter "sendkey ctrl-alt-f1".

Cheers,
geta
