Tools that will notify me once after my MS Windows server 2008 R2 has been rebooted.

Would like to know whether there is a tool that can notify me (via email or SMS) once after my PC or server has been rebooted accidentally?

Since I found one of my personal server (MS Server 2008 R2) will be rebooted several times a day without any understandable reasons in the Windows event log.  Of course, this need to be solve rather than just monitoring.  But before that, I need to know when it has been rebooted.  Since there is a program that need to run constantly on the server, if it has been rebooted, I need to RDP that server and at least login and run the program again.  May I know whether any tools that can notify me once after my server has been rebooted?  Thanks a lot.
