impossible to reboot OS in python?

I heard it was impossible to induce a reboot in python as the os module does
not cater for that. Is this true?

I know in DOS you could just set a hex value at the correct address to
induce a cold or warm reboot, but this won't work for windows machines.

Does it depend on the os installed?
