Hi. I have tried sudo shutdown -r command. It runs normal and computer reboots without any warning. But I noticed that when system only starts-during loading proses in black screen there was some warnings such as: module rt3290 can't find, using makefile concurent runlevel and some others.. Thanks –  shamorasulov Jun 28 '13 at 19:14
