That's an odd one
The only thing that comes to mind is the BIOS battery. If it is low voltage maybe the CMOS memory is corrupted during a long power off - you boot and it crashes. You reboot and (this is the speculative bit) it resets to defaults.
Depending on the age of your system it may report the battery voltage in the BIOS (most likely press the Del key when you start up and search around for "environment" or "power status" or something like that). Or you could download Everest which will tell you the battery voltage -

Nov/Dec last year, so fairly recent.
If the computer is 4+ years old the chances are the battery needs replacement.
