Hard Restart of MacBook Pro with Touch Bar

Post by Ray Bentsen » Wed Apr 25, 2018 9:29 am

I was recently in a situation where I needed to reboot my non-responding MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, but discovered that there is no dedicated power button as with previous MacBooks. So, how do you restart without a working keyboard or trackpad ??

A little research led me to the discovery that the fingerprint sensor at the right end of the touch bar is ALSO a power button. So, if you press on it rather than just touch it, the MacBook will restart.

Another mystery solved. ;)
