I suspect you have a Watchdog timer feature enabled (Usually server systems like HP and Dell have it).
This is a feature that when the system stalls (on Windows level), it will reboot to prevent a frozen system.
However, I found it to be bothersome, and have lived without the Watchdog feature for decades now. It's more trouble than any good it may be.
Disable Watchdog in the BIOS.

Check your hardware for problems. Also check what non OS native software is running on the server, it could be causing issues.

Turn off the auto reboot feature in the system properties.
control panel,system advanced

Next time the system crashes ,note the stop error.

That isn't possible. Disabling the auto reboot only shows the stops the PC rebooting after a crash. It will rather show the bluescreen and you have to boot the PC manually after that. It can help find the problem, but it can't cure it.

If the server hasn't rebooted or BSOD'd since then that was pure chance and has nothing at all to do with that setting.

Agreed, it's just a coincidence the server didn't restart again, coinciding with him changing that option.
