And that could be a lot of work to put into making a script when I could be spending that time on the real thing. But I guess it comes down to being able to produce something productive in the least amount of time.

No, there's a difference between a hard reset and a power cycle. Hard reset tells the drive to reinitialize and reload it's service area, while I don't know the specific command, it can be issued via ATA.
