I want to restart our sonicwall ssl-vpn 200 device. If I unplug the power cable and plug it back, would this cause any other problems like failed services or failed connections?

Yes, those users will be affected. The sessions at the Sonicwall will be ended, and thus all the VPN connections at clients will be disconnected since they can no longer connect to the Sonicwall while it is rebooting.

If you want to drop all their sessions, pull the plug now, or if I were you, leave it until after hours :)

Users will loose their connection, but not all users may notice it at first. Users connected with Netextender will be the first to notice since that is an active VPN connection. Users that are logged into the portal may not notice at first since its just a webpage, but if they have active bookmarks in use such as RDP or file share, they will loose those connections. Users connected to the portal will also be required to log back in. Netextender by default will try to auto-reconnect.
