Remotely reboot a FileVault 2 protected Mac

So this is one is pretty neat.

If your Mac is far away(or you are lying in your bed) and you want to restart your Mac, you can just sudo shutdown -r now. </p>

But what if your Mac is FileVault 2 protected and encrypted? Who is typing the password for you into the keyboard? The answer? Just use sudo fdesetup authrestart and you are good to go!
