Also to find a droplet_id from the droplet you can:

curl -s

First go here:

Click on the droplet.

Look in the URL of your droplet’s graph. The URL will contain:

go into the droplet >power>power cycle >click on the big blue button
or just enter into ssh and sudo reboot
Are you able to log into your droplet via SSH or the VNC console? Rebooting your droplet via either of those two mediums is preferred over a "hard reboot" via the API.

That said, if you log into your account => click the hyperlink to the droplet you'd like to reboot = the droplet ID will show up in the address bar of your browser.
