On my laptop – Vista Home Premium – the soft restart doesn’t work. Never has. Doing this always results in black screen. It gets stuck somewhere. Also doesn’t matter if it is triggered manually or from an installer.
So, that means I have to apply the five second rule : I press the power button for five seconds, then it shuts down. It’s not really a rule, but what the heck, it sounds cool to say : “OK, I guess I’ll have to apply the five second rule”.
Why does my laptop behave like this? Who knows? Who cares? Is there a fix? Who knows? Maybe there is, maybe there isn’t? Why is applying a restart so much harder than shutdown followed by a start? Who knows? Is there anybody out there who knows what Vista is up to? Has the complexity caught up to the developers? Is the complexity resulting in chaos? Is the chaos resulting in boundless indeterminism? Is indeterminism something like intelligence? Who knows? Anybody?
