Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think it will as long as the BIOS is setup to resume when power returns. When a computer restarts, the BIOS controls the machine. As long as your bootloader (grub or lilo) has a timeout to start the first thing after XXX seconds, it should work.
As said their is a Bios option for this that you will find with other options and methods to bring a machine online (like wake on lan or wake on keyboard) I believe it's called on power or wake on power, generally in most bios types but I could be wrong. Anyway it's better to use "last state" however incase their is a reason you want to keep a server offline (imagine power tripping and bringing up a server that is suppose to be offline). Last state should take a computer to it's previous state of power before the power outage.
my query involves i am doing a project in college and it involves using unbuntu as dual boot. first of all i would like you to recommend a type of unbuntu download that would suit. i also want the system to auto restart if any help is shared i would greatly appreciate it.
I'd suggest you research yourself a bit more, you have been told about how to do an auto restart already, you could try and look at the ubuntu site for methods of install, one that might not be mentioned that I will mention is PXE as an option.
