LMDE skips Grub when restarting

I am running LMDE with xfce desktop version 4.8.0 and Windows 7 on a sony vaio.
Everything works fine except for one minor inconvenience... When I am using xfce and want to reboot to windows, I have to click shutdown,turn the computer off then back on to get to the grub menu. If I click restart, it reboots back into xfce without ever showing the grub menu. Any idea how to change this?
Thank you in advance
