You could use the shutdown command from the cli.
I am currently on knoppix so I cannot give you al the options.
Also I found this @ MS, it might help
1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
3. Click Performance and Maintenance under Pick a category.
4. Click System under the or pick a Control Panel icon section.
5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
6. Click to select any of the following check boxes under System Failure:
* Write an event to the system log
* Send an administrative alert
* Automatically restart

go to www.download.com and do a search for x setup....it is a full featured XP tweaker that will solve this and many other issues. And, of course, it's free....my favorite 4 letter word!
It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...
