VMware Workstation\ESX Revert to Snapshot and Resume Automatically

Is there anyway for a VirtualMachine running on VMware Workstation to revert back to a Snapshot on power off and then Resume automatically?

I changed the setting to "When powering off: Revert to Snapshot" however this will only revert to a snapshot and not automatically Resume or Turn on the VirtualMachine.

In a lab environment I want to set up VirtualMachines so that they will Revert back to an Original state when a user logs off of them. So Revert then automatically turn back on or resume.

Thanks.

Easy solution:

Make the disk non-persistent, when system is rebooted it will revert to its original state
