After my Windows 7/Server 2008 R2 finished updating (windows update) during the night it restarts. I want it to auto login to my (admin) account after it restarts, but only auto login after a windows update.

How can I achieve this?

I've not done this myself, but there's a couple of registry edits you can do to enable auto login. The doc linked at the link is for XP, but it will apparently work for Server 2008.
