Here is an app I wrote to restart or shutdown a bit faster, or for when picking Apple -> Restart isn't working for some reason, since I prefer not to do a hard reset by holding the power button down. It uses a root shell command 'sudo shutdown -r now' to achieve it's magic combined with an AppleScript to rapidly log you out without saving saving changes!Click the big hand to download Fast Reboot Mac
The only known bug is actually a bug/feature in macOS: When your computer has come back up, macOS will ask you if you want to open Fast Reboot Mac again. Don't do that. It will reboot again as thats all this app does. You see now?
That's one app you don't wan't to re-open the next day!
If you are curious / distrustful, you can inspect the scripts by right-clicking Show Package Contents:
