   Could you be dealing with a locked screen where the first reboot command is sending a

"ctl-alt-del" that is actually telling Windows-10 to reboot?

   One way that might be useful to see if that is the case is to connect to the 
Windows 10 console and then send the reboot commands.  You could see if the 
reboot command is doing someone on the console screen.

Thank you Don. I've done more testing and I am slightly more confused, although I think I am making progress:

1. If I am on on the login screen (through vnc or rdp) or already logged in, both shutdown and reboot commands work 2. If I have logged in, but then locked the screen, neither shutdown nor reboot work, no matter how many times I send them.

It is starting to sound like a Windows specific problem, so I will get back to researching whatever registry settings might be available.

Thanks again for the suggestions
