I don't have that problem with my OpenBSD 3.4 box.
I SSH into the remote system, make any necessary changes, and if
a system restart is nessary, issue command 'reboot'. The system
comes right back up.
You might want to check the BIOS. Some have settings for what to
do in case of a power failure, which 'reboot' is not.
