When you attempt to restart a Windows 2000-based Terminal Services server from a client session by clicking Start, clicking Shut Down, and then clicking Restart, the server may not restart. Instead, it may shut down.
Winlogon.exe does not restart the server on a restart command that is issued from a Terminal Services client. When Terminal Services is installed, Winlogon.exe orders the server to shut down instead of restart.
