VMs not starting after system restart?

I had a pretty serious issue where the Proxmox KVM machines didn't restart after the Proxmox server itself restarted a couple times. I do have the machines' options set to start at boot, however they still didn't start. I ended up having to execute `qm start <vmid>` to get things going again.

Is there anything I can check here to see why this happened or make sure it doesn't happen again?
there should be a task log "start all vms and containers" and also a task log for each vm it tried to start, there should be more information
