I've seen this problem before.. what I think is wrong with your computer
is your keyboard. Don't laugh, from what I've heard Linux does the reboot
stuff by praying to the keyboard controller to issue an interrupt(or
something like that) - some keyboards just won't do it. Try with another one.

Hope this is it,
