Vmware ESXi 4 - Automatically Boot Guest After Host Restarted

I believe this will be an easy answer, but I cant seem to find anything via web search, and I'm too lazy to dig through the documentation . :-)

We have a new Vmware ESXi 4.0 Update 1 server running a few VM's. Is there a setting that will auto-start the guest OS's after the ESX host is restarted?

After an unexpected outage, I have to login to the host to restart the guests, but would like to not have to do this.
Thanks for your time!

Go in the vSphere Client to the host and the on the tabs - Configuration - Software - VM Start / Shutdown.
There you can set up a list of vm's for start up and in which order.
