He forgot one rebooting technique: Pull the power cord, re-insert, and press the power button. Of course, if this is a portable computer, you'll need to remove the battery first. :-)
Granted, pressing the reset button would qualify as a seventh method, but my experience is that most consumer-grade desktops and laptops don't bother including a reset button anymore (although my home-built case has one and the Intel MoBo I use supports it). Going off on a tangent, I wonder if the reset button invokes one of the five mechanisms MJG mentions...?
