Reboot = Restart.
Kick on the apple logo at the top left hand corner of the screen then select "Restart".

Here are the shortcuts for OS X: OS X: Keyboard shortcuts - Apple Support

You can hit Control+Power button to show you a dialog from where you can choose Restart or Sleep. The same is available, as docx said, from clicking on the Apple icon on the top left..

You can hit CMD+Control+Power to force a reset if your Mac is stuck..

Not necessary to start a new thread for the same "Reboot" topic. Threads merged.

Thanks,
