Another vote for the new nomenclature - 'onreboot' is perfect.

I could make a weak argument for conforming the args to what is most commonly used in motherboard BIOS' for 'after power loss' - turnon, stayoff, laststate. But I'm not too sure it's any clearer than as proposed.

I was writing something like the above, but François beat me to it.

I strongly agree with this suggestion.  start/nostart/laststate is far more intuitive and descriptive than auto and adaptive.

And much better to use a new a new keyword rather than repurposing an existing keyword.
