If you use init 6 as root in

If you use init 6 as root in the terminal the computer should reboot, replace 6 with 0 if you wish to halt the system.

I personally always use poweroff and reboot Eye.

I think shutdown poweroff

I think shutdown poweroff are symlinks to init 0, though I can not check.

/sbin/init 0
/usr/sbin/init 0

IIRC some fedora versions have errors where by /sbin[s] are not in the $PATH.

have had some issues with this

I've had this with some distros and not with others. I'm thinking it is a difference in what exact options they have compiled the kernel with and their compatibility with my BIOS. I don't know anything else as I've not looked further into it as I leave the system up and running all the time. It may not be the same, but I guess it's another lead to look into at least.
