Default Power button + volume down?

What does pressing the power and volume down buttons together do? I tried it and the phone's screen just turned off, then I hit the power button again and it turned right back on. I thought this button combo was to reboot the phone...

Push and hold them for 10 seconds, it'll force a reboot.

Minor point, doesn't it force a shutdown, not a reboot (works like pressing the powerbutton on you're computer).

It'll automatically reboot (instead of staying off).
