I've been doing the alt-cap-del since the 950 for hard reboots and doing it twice consecutively does nothing mo
re than once. A soft reboot is clicking the power off icon on the home screen.
My guess is that you are canadian.
What arrogance! Did the "Montreal" location under the avatar give you that feeling? So, you have deployed units and you insist that a keyboard single reboot performs a hard reboot...I was almost going to believe you -- until I did this again, just now on my 8700R. This is what I have found (nothing new). Press Alt & Right cap, then Del...device reboots in 21 seconds with radio on. Hardly what I would call a Hard Reboot (no security software message). Now, if you do the exact same thing again within a minute of the time that the home screen re-appears, the device reboots and comes back with the "verifying security software" message and the reboot takes 62 seconds to come back with the radio on (much quicker than previous generations). So, either your 8700's operate differently than ours, or you have not actually tried this procedure on an 8700 or 7290. I will give you the benefit of the doubt since you're a "talking encyclopedia".
