Well, this leaves us without a Restart option.

So again I propose that the Restart option be reclaimed as part of the user 
dropdown menu.

As I mentioned, I use this feature *constantly* (with SoaS Strawberry), to 
easily boot in and out of Windows. Otherwise, I'd have to completely shut

Status in Sugar on a Stick: Won't Fix

Bug description:
CTRL/ALT/BKSPACE doesn't restart SoaS, as it does the XO-1. The system 
freezes instead. Since with 0.86 the restart option no longer appears in the 
user drop-down menu, developers lack a restart option.

Such an option is particularly useful on SoaS when a quick boot into an 
alternate OS (such as Windows) is desired.

(Alternately, this "keyboard shortcut" should be completely disabled, as 
currently it only results in a crash.)
