set these prom variables appropriately:
AutoLoad Controls whether the system boots automatically on
reset or power cycle. Can be set to Yes or No.
Previously, this function was controlled by setting
bootmode to c or m. This variable is overridden by the
rebound variable and the reboot_on_panic kernel tunable
parameter. This variable is stored in nonvolatile RAM.
autopower Specifies whether a setting of y allows a system with
software power control to automatically power back on
after an AC power failure. The default setting of n
requires the power switch to be pressed to restart the
system. This variable is stored in nonvolatile RAM.
rebound Specifies that the system should automatically reboot
after a kernel panic if this variable is set to y. The
variable interacts with the AutoLoad variable and the
reboot_on_panic kernel tunable parameter.
