Ahhh. That prompts a possible solution. I would guess that you didn't
have time to see if it had a BIOS upgrade available. From watching this
list of a long period, I note that many ACPI issues are resolved when a
BIOS upgrade is applied. I guess that manufacturers rush the stuff out
the door and then later some issues are found and fixes made available.

If you've not checked to see if there is a BIOS upgrade available, it
may be worthwhile. Even if it doesn't solve the occasional operational
issues, it may solve the reboot issues.
