    Checking for server reboots

    I have a Windows VPS host where I leave some software running, that periodically does stuff. The odd thing is that when I log into the VPS a day or two later, the program is close.

    Is there any way to check when the server has been rebooted or why its closed down?

    You can check in the Event Viewer

    Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer

    Should be under the "System" logs..

    Why don't you setup monitoring which can check the system uptime or service monitoring and alert you when it fails?

    How are you connecting remotely? RDP? Also, if you have this process running and it requires a user to be logged on, you may look at autologon or something (sysinternals tool).
    You can also turn the process into a service (usually), which can auto-restart should it crash.
    Or, something similar can be done with remote services via pstools.
    Quite a few ways at your disposal, but it depends on what you are running, and how.
    This is the best signature in the world....Tribute!
