How to properly reboot machine with PowerShell.

Just today my wonderful colleague showed me a great way to restart machine and at the same time – test if it has came up and is operational (basically if PowerShell responds remotely).

Restart-Computer -ComputerName <COMPUTERNAME> -Wait -Protocol wsman -force

Use -force to forcely logoff any active sessions (savage!!!!)

After performing restart in above way, console waits and will not go further, unless PS on the remote machine responds!
