No matter how fast or sloppy my typing, nor what editor I use, I'm very
unlikely to accidentally reach under the desk and hit the (recessed)
reset button while sitting at the keyboard, working.

On many machines now, the power switch invokes a shutdown dialog,
instead of simply powering the machine off with no warning--see the
GNOME power-management applet's dialog.  On my wife's Dell Dimension, I
haven't even been able to locate a reset button--the only thing on the
front panel available to press is the power button.  No reset button on
any of my laptops, either.
