My method:

  1. Set up a remote interactive session to autostart (follow the instructions at http://wiki.imacros.net/How_to_Schedule_a_RemoteInteractive_Session - its easier then it sounds!)

  2. Create a shortcut to the vmware machine(s) you need to autostart and drag them to the autostart folder.

Here's some instructions how to do it on VMware Server:

It's easier to look for starting a VM on power up since it is the same as rebooting on a restart.
