Thinkpad T400 Hardwareview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Two hardware questions: 1. What is the equivalent of a reset/reboot button that most desktop models have? I can press the On/Off button for about 5 seconds to power off the laptop. I want to reboot the laptop without powering off. (Sometimes the laptop freezes and Ctrl-Alt-Del fails to reboot.) 2.
