When the machines boot up and login, check their event viewer for more detailed error information.
My computer is not part of a domain and I don't have those issues. However, you can set a machine to reboot if group policy fails to apply. Looking at the settings of how group policy deals with failures may help.

However, if you restart the machine say the next day they boot up instantly like nothing was ever wrong. I suspect it is doing whether it is doing a full group policy apply or part.
Is there anyone else experiencing such weird behaviour? I keen to find out why the disk is at 100%?
