I have two identical computers (same mobo, memory, and peripherals) both running Ubuntu 12.10. The only difference is one has an Intel Core i7-3770K and the other has an Intel Core i7-3770S. I have also double checked that both computers have the exact same bios settings (minus cpu voltage levels).
Here is the problem: On reboot (via the OS or by pressing "reset" button), the computer with the 3770K does a full power cycle before booting up again. The computer with the 3770S stays powered on during reboot.
I desire to have both computers perform a full power cycle on reboot.
My Questions: 1) What causes a computer to power cycle / not power cycle during reboot. 2) What could potentially be the difference between my two set-ups that causes this?
Things I have tried:
- Switching HDs between the computers does not produce different results. The behavior seems to follow the CPU/mobo hardware around, not the OS.
