I found it while surfing ubuntuforums.org
for "nuggets" that I find interesting as I like to "look under the hood" of Linux.
Such as How to kill a program without the kill command
I enjoy collecting "nuggets" like this and my DorkBlog
is full of such stuff.
I caught my eye because I remembered your post here and saw the post there and I hoped it was correct information.
Sorry to those who contributed, I knew that is wasn't
a terminal command that you were after.

I have not found any documentation anywhere.
I am afraid so, if you are like me, and it sounds like you are, we like to know what's going on "under the hood"
Somewhere in my head, I remember some "tricks" that dbus does but since I don't "program" in C or develop either, I couldn't remember the name of the mechanism that performed these actions. But I knew deep down it was no freaking front-end to a /bin/binary!
If so, which programs and where do I find them?
You'll have to dig some more and I hope this provides light to your search for the answer.
And if I did know, where's the fun in that? Linux would be boring
if you didn't look under the hood on your own.
You are an inspiration
and a breath of fresh air.
Keep on "Looking under the hood" my friend.
Apparently: this doesn't work on my slackware64 system using "run" or the terminal. Bummer.
and I'm sure countlless other caveats exist, depending on OS/Desktop...

This worked immediately for my slackwa14_64 host:
dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit /org/freedesktop/ConsoleKit/Manager org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.Restart
