the only equivalent im aware of is a battery pull. and yes, it is the first thing to try for minor issues.
someone people appear to pull the battery out while the device is still on. however, i dont, i turn off the device, pull the battery from anywhere between 5 and 30 seconds, and put back in. it will then show the red light, start up and show white screen with clock and finally boot completely, and this normally fixes any minor problems the bold has.
"That's it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings... and call off Christmas."
