The way I understand it, resetting the device does not clear what is in the device's memory. Powering down the device or performing the key combination you just described performs such a reset.

Pulling the battery forces a complete reboot of the device, clearing everything that had been in memory ... running apps, clipboard items, etc. Quickpull (I use v2 as I imagine most members of these forums do) simulates a physical battery pull.
