The reason this is done is that it's often quicker to shutdown the entire
airplane than to find all the circuit breakers that might be involved with
resetting a system.

CB's are often cryptically labeled and seldom co-located.

Resetting in this manner works for all airplanes with lots of electronics;
Boeing, McD, Airbus, Lockheed... none are immune.
