How about reboot -p


         Reboot to prom. This flag can be used to reboot the sys-
         tem through firmware without changing the default reboot
         behavior as  denoted  by  the  config/fastreboot_default
         property setting in system/boot-config service.

         This option is currently available only on x86  systems.
         The -p and -f options are mutually exclusive.
