need to disable prompt at login after unexpected shutdown

When my Windows 2003 server shuts down unexpectedly, the next time I logon, I am prompted for a reason. I have the server set to autologin, so whenever I have a power failure, and the system restarts, the autologin process halts at the prompt. There are applications that I need to start in the startup folder, and these do not start until after a reason is entered. This defeats the purpose of the autologin. Does anyone know how to disable this "feature" on Windows Server 2003 so that I am not prompted after an unexpected shutdown?
