Where does Windows 2000 store whether the last shutdown was a restart or shutdown (switch off)?
Is this in the registry or somewhere else?

After a bit of registry searching I came across the key that stores this info:
0x2 = Shut down
Ends the session and shuts down Windows 2000 so that the power can be turned off safely.
0x4 = Restart
Ends the session, shuts down Windows 2000, and starts Windows 2000 again.
This is documented fully on the Microsoft TechNet - Explorer Shutdown page.
