Problems with Mint 6 reboot & media disks

Hey, I have been using Mint for a while now and I have noticed some problems or lets say bugs.
Firstly, I can't use restart button from menu, cause it simply just does nothing, however command "sudo reboot" in terminal seems to work perfectly.
Another "bug" is that Mint does not automatically load my other paritions, but when I click on them I get one error notice and after that it works just fine.
I would appreciate if you guys can figure these out and give me some hints what to do or where to look at to solve these problems.
Otherwise my experience with Linux Mint 6 has been just great

Post the errors! What about your 'fstab'? Your subject title could be a little more informative.

My fstab:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
# /dev/sda5
UUID=3f115ff4-cddf-471b-9a92-8209e1fd2887 / ext3 relatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1
# /dev/sda6

/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
Looks like no vista partition here...

So some time has passed, but I have not found the solution I am looking for.

So when I start up Linux Mint 6.0 it does not automatically find my other volumes. When i click in Computer to the icon it gives me warning:
Cannot mount volume.
Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume.
And after that it works just fine.

I tried to fix that problem by changing volume mount option to "auto", but it, as you can expect did not work...
Now I get 2 warnings:
Unable to mount location
Internal error: No mount object for mounted volume
Unable to mount location
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReplay:did not recive a reply- Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Can you give any advice what to do next, so that I could get my linux normally running.

Ouyeah, and the "does not restart" problem still remains...

Okay, so I figured the volume mounting problem out.

But still, no action if I try to reboot from menu-quit-restart. But all works fine when in terminal, and command sudo reboot. What might be the problem?
