Big brother with a M$ twist. The twist? Since it is a well known fact that M$ applications, as well as the OS they are tied to, are prone to lock-up conditions, a built-in reboot mechanism is a primary inclusion of the patent application. This is good news as it will call into question chain of custody in a law suit. If no reboots are present in the data collection; it implies that the data had been tampered with, or that data was collected using a Linux OS.
