State-Changed-Why: 
this is not just possible, it does happen frequently. I'm seeing this @ work several times a week.
If a script fires a signal to reboot and a few moments later, another instruction tells init to just shutdown, init will forget about the reboot.
I've created a patch for that problem, which solves that problem (stress tested my notebook with that):
