battery pull vs. "alt + shift + del"

Wondering if y'all could settle a (friendly) argument.

 

I have an End User who is insisting that hitting the "alt + shift + del" on

a BB (Tour) accomplishes the same feat as pulling the battery.

 

My side is that the aforementioned keystroke is more a soft reset, and

doesn't accomplish the same affect as a battery pull, which is more a

hard reset.

 

Curious as to whom might be correct.
