If you were able to log in asap when the system reboots do you get any errors on the system? This is a common thing and their have been several updates to the installer to prevent it.   May be worth looking more into.

Also can you check the status of your pcAnywhere licenses in SIM?  If your licences have expired or you are over count then I think you will also see odd behavior with pcAnywhere.
