This problem also exists in one of the del optiplex systems I used to 
have.  it was a problem with the bios, it would hang on reboot commands 
and not do a powercycle like it should. this problem was rare in windows 
but very common using freebsd and openbsd both.  usualy worked ok though 
with most versions of linux.   the solution for me was to upgrade the bios.

this may not help but I hope it does..
