Restart the computer is a warmboot. Close all applictions refers to closing all programs and going back to the logon window.

On more modern machines, "Restart" actually cycles the power thereby causing a "Cold" boot. "Close all programs and log on as a different user" ends all USER specific programs and services, but leaves all SYSTEM services running (e.g. the FILE SYSTEM SERVICE, the WORKSTATION SERVICE, the SERVER service, the SPOOLER service if there are printers shared, etc.)
