Why would the computer not restart with the power button for 15 minutes after properly shutting down but restart with no problem using the restart option?

XP's power management allows you to define what the computer does when the power button is pressed. It may be on your system that it is set to hibernate instead of power off. Also, depending on the shutdown procedure being used, a program may not be relinquishing control to the operating system. Choosing Start -> Restart is a "cleaner" reboot sequence and so the program is not forced to abruptly terminate, instead it is allowed to properly shut itself down which avoids any hang-ups like the one portrayed in the question.
