Killing the Shutdown Tracker

What was Microsoft thinking when they incorporated the "Shutdown tracker"? You know that dumb screen that pops up when you want to reboot the server and asks you why you want to reboot. I can't think of a more annoying gauntlet to go through every time I reboot or shutdown the new 2003 server. Now for the big 2003 dollar question. How do I kill it? I know it must be some policy setting, but I can't find it. This has got to be a service pack fix.
Dumb, dumb,,,,dumb
