Auto restart is an IBM-compatible computer feature where a desktop or laptop restarts and automatically boots without pressing any physical buttons on the computer. For example, pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del several times causes Microsoft Windows to automatically shut down and restart. Unlike using the power button or reset button, an auto restart is initiated through software, not hardware.
