Restarting a remote Mac via AppleScript
Authored by: john_e on Aug 02, '03 07:32:48AM

Yes exactly, if you restart a machine via the shell you should use shutdown -r now (or some value). To shut it down invoke shutdown with -h instead of -r.
The reboot command should only be used if the machine won't restart normally. It's basically the equivalent of pushing the power button, i.e not very graceful.
