I have an 8 Mbit AtariMax cartridridge which appropriately loads the AtariMax Cartridridge menu screen when plugging cartridge into left cartridge slotof my Atari 800. I use joystick or keyboard to select a game and all works well.
When I want to play another game and get back to the main menu screen I have been turning computer OFF and back to ON. Is there any keyboard combination that will return me to the menu screen without having to turn computer off and on?

No, the Atari 800 does not have a hardware reset and software like games usually trap the software reset so the game will restart when the reset key is pressed.

Without making a hardware modification of some kind, the only way to really reset the 800 is to power cycle it.

The cartridge is compatible with as little as 16K of ram, but most of the games you will want to load will probably require a minimum of 48K.
