The ExitWindowsEx function can be passed EWX_REBOOT in the uFlags parameter which will make the machine reboot after it has been shutdown.

The value of EWX_REBOOT is 2.

Hope this helps ...

I use:

    Option Explicit

    #If Win32 Then
        Private Declare Function ShutdownWindows Lib "user32" Alias _
            "ExitWindowsEx" (ByVal uFlags As Long, _
            ByVal dwReserved As Long) As Long
        Private Declare Function ShutdownWindows Lib "user" Alias _
            "ExitWindows" (ByVal wReturnCode As Integer, _
            ByVal dwReserved As Integer) As Integer
    #End If
    Private Const EWX_LOGOFF = 0
    Private Const EWX_SHUTDOWN = 1
    Private Const EWX_REBOOT = 2
    Private Const EWX_FORCE = 4

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
        ShutdownWindows EWX_FORCE, 0
    End Sub
