It is possible to reset the device by calling the UserSvr::ResetMachine() method, but this should not be done because data files can get corrupted.


UserSvr::ResetMachince() provides means to reset the device. However, applications should not use this function because it does not allow a proper exit, which can cause corruption of data files.


Let the user always reset the device manually.
