The act of restarting
To start again
In a computer or data transmission system, to reset means is to clear any pending errors or events and bring a system to normal condition or initial state usually in a controlled manner. It is usually done in response to an error condition when a processing activity is impossible to proceed or it's undesirable for the activity to proceed and all error recovery mechanisms fail. A computer storage software would normally perform a "reset" if a command times out and error recovery schemes like retry or abort also fail.
reset is also a BSD/Linux/UNIX command to restore a console to a normal state. This command is an alias of the tset terminal initialization command. http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/man.cgi?query=tset&apropos=0&sektion=0&manpath=OpenBSD+Current&arch=i386&format=html
