I have searched all over and cannot find a definitive answer about whether or not it is possible to set a chassis power button to reset/restart instead of shutdown.

I know that the options available under "Power Options" are only "Do Nothing", "Sleep" and "Shutdown".

Is it possible for me to set a power button on a Intel NUC i3 to restart the PC and not shut it down?

There is no way to do this in Windows 7, only in some Windows Server versions.

The closest you could get to this would be getting a 3rd-party keyboard shortcut software and mapping a hotkey combination to execute a reboot batch.
