Considerations

If you don’t specify the -Force switch the computer may not shutdown and restart, because of other programs not closing.
There is a 20 second delay before the start of the restart.
The -Force switch currently does not have any effect on Mac OS.

Example

Set Field [ result ; Actr_Restart ( "" ) ]

This will restart the computer.

Set Field [ result ; Actr_Restart ( "-force" ) ]

This will restart the computer, forcing all programs to close.
