I have a project involving a Linux Live CD.
My users hate manual reboot, which from windows means selecting shutdown, waiting through the reboot process, finding the Boot menu key (usually F10 or F12, but it varies by PC), pressing it like crazy, and finally pulling out hair when windows reboots anyway because they were not fast enough or paying attention.
Ideally, there would be a way to have an autorun or a windows program on the CD, which could ask the user if they want to shutdown and reboot to the CD, and would then do it. This may be wishful thinking.
Is there a way to do this that is simple and universal and will work in the various flavors of windows...? I'm guessing no, because the Linux distros would have it already, but there may be a genius out here who knows how.
