System Dell Latitude E6320: Kernel 3.18.12.

When I invoke a reboot,either with ctrl+alt+delete or command reboot, the system reboots 'fine'; but the reboot is a coldboot. The system shuts down completely, and turns back on (on its own); so technically it is a reboot. Problem is I need it to warmboot. I noticed that While invoking reboot in Windows, on the same system, it reboots as expected; system restarts, but never shuts down completely. I assume I need to do something in my Kernel? Maybe my UEFI is just buggy with Linux? What can I do, or where should I look, in order to fix my problem?

If you share ntfs-data you should shutdown Windows completely if you update ntfs-data also from Linux. I think incomplete shutdown will be a problem if you run Windows 8 and Linux. But I'm not sure...

As root, try `shutdown -r now`

If that works, then somehow your ctl-alt-del key combo is assigned to `shutdown -h now`

On many systems (maybe all, I don't know systemd), that key assignment is made in /etc/inittab

Code:
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -h now


Your window manager may also have an assignment for that key combination.

Actually I have tried 'shutdown -r now', and the problem persists. I am most certain it is a Kernel issue. I will try another Linux Distro. Also I do NOT Dual Boot Windows on my lappy; nor do I share file systems with WIndows. With that being said I noticed the reboot issue was not present in Windows while I was Upgrading UEFI for my lappy with Extertanl-HDD... just a clarification.
Anyhow, I will update this post with troubleshooting results; and all input is appreciated thank you!
Also I use OpenRC.

One thing to note: The event logs in my UEFI indicate
ASF2 Force Off: whn the system 'reboots'.
