Checking to see if a file exists using rc.local and if it does reboots the PI if not create it (i.e touch myfile). You also need to add a script to delete that file with an orderly shutdown.
I have rebooted a few times using sudo to make sure a proper reboot has been done. On boot it goes through the following folders
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait q$wait quiet logo.nologo
Next thing ive set up is /etx/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
@xset s off
@xset s noblank
@iceweasel --noerrdialogs --kiosk telnet://bard
only bits ive modified is to make it so i have custom images on bootup and no background, just a blank window
