Do you by any chance wish to modify the behavior of Ctrl+Alt+Delete?
Change the following line in file  /etc/inittab:


ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now

Comment it out with to disable Ctrl+Alt+Del altogether or replace the /sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now part with a command of your choice. This way you can first unmount NAS shares before rebooting forcefully or use the halt command instead of -t1 -a -r now.
