Ctrl + Command + Reset = Force the reboot
Ctrl + Alt_L + F12 = works in MESS !

Ctrl + Option + Reset = Reboot via a setup menu
Ctrl + Alt_R + F12 = works in MESS !

Ctrl + Command + Option + Reset = Run a self-test -------> EDIT: (Note: on some places it is said: "Command + Option + Reset" / and "Command + Option" on power-up!)
Ctrl + Alt_L + Alt_R + F12 = does not work in MESS !???

Ctrl + Command + Escape = Desk Accessory menu
Ctrl + Alt_L + Esc = does not work MESS !???

Ctrl + Reset = Basic prompt
CTRL + F12 = does not work in MESS !??? (Note: was working fine in f.e. an old MESS143u3b!)

Manage to start the self-test by keeping pressed "Command + Option" (i.e. Alt_L + Alt_R) during power-up phase, but the test did not pass! (System bad: 05012400)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Btw. only AppleGS emu that passes the self-test is GSport ... it reports SYSTEM GOOD!
I needed to press F1 + Alt_R + F12 on GSport emu to start the self-test as Alt_L + Alt_R + F12 seems not working! (at least on my PC)

Note: Self-tests will pass if speed = 2.8MHz and "Enable Text Page 2 shadow = Disabled for ROM 01" in emu F4 menu.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PS. Seems some old machines also have self-test: (Note: just wait a little when screen with colors appears)

apple2e
-----------
Ctrl + ALt_R + F12 = self-test --> ROM:E8
But on AppleWin emu reports --> KERNAL OK (Note: use Pause/Break instead of F12 key!)

apple2ee
apple2ep
-------------
Ctrl + ALt_R + F12 = self-test --> System OK
Same reports also on AppleWin emu ! (Note: use Pause/Break instead of F12 key!)

apple2c0
apple2c3
apple2c4
-------------
press Alt_L + Alt_R @ power-up = self-test --> System OK
