So, things like init 6 just reboot from the kernel upward.  But sometimes you want or need to reset the computer, make it go through BIOS and grub and everything.

If you login on the physical console, you can go to System / Shutdown, and there's a checkbox, "Skip boot menu on restart" which controls this behavior.  But if you're connected into gnome via VNC, that menu isn't present.

How do you fully reboot the computer, without the physical console?
