To access Administrator logon regardless of the state of the thin client user mode:
While holding down Shift, click Start > Shut Down. Still holding down Shift, from the Shut Down
dialog box, select Log Off, and then click OK.
The screen for Administrator logon is displayed.

^--- Hold shift the whole time....
