SbS 2011 Remote Web Access and Outlook Web Access offline  after reboot

I have SBS 2011 running my small company's domain.  If relevant, it is runnig under Vmware ESX5i, but I think I have observed the following issues when it was running on bare iron.

We often get power failures in our area, but we have a couple of APC UPS machies which support an orderly shutdfown and restar of the server t.  However, I have noticed that all is well after a reboot, except that we stop receiving emails on our ipads and iphones.  However, the emails do still reach the desktop.

Sometimes it takes a day or two to notice, and when I go to the websites tab on the Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard Console only the internal website (companyweb) is online.

Putting the Remote Web Access site online, also seems to put the Outlook Web Access site  online, and then the emails start pinging up on my iphone.

My question is:- are there settings in SBS2011, the registry, or wherever, which will ensure that the above two websites will be automatically put online after a reboot?  

My background in unix/C++ software development, so i might need a bit of handholdiing in the microsoft environment.  If it needs a script to be written, and slotted into the boot process, I'm happy to give it a go - but will need some instructions

Google led me to the correct answer here:-

RWW and OWA websites not restarting automatically after a restart

Executive Summary is :-

Navigate to IIS Manager, go to the list of your websites, you should see default website, right click on it and choose advanced settings. Look at the bottom of the list and you should see an option called "automatically start" or something similiar. It is probably set to false, change it to True and start the website...


Very disappointed that no-one here had the knowledge and/or inclination to answer such a basic question.  The ISS config page is a maze of options, and I'd given up on my previous searches before persisting with google.
