Have you checked to make sure 'Startup Type' is 'Automatic' and not Disabled or Manual?
If it is Automatic, open the properties for that service and under the Recovery tab - change the 3 failure actions to 'Restart the Service'. Reboot to test...

Yesterday I unistalled Act + SQL 2008, then installed Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 RTM - Express from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=3743 . SQL Installed fine, so I next installed Act!, This took over 3 hours and the database appeared fine,
This morning SQL is 'stopped' after booting and other users can't access it. I've now spent more than a day trying to install 2012 - any other ideas please?

There's a batch file here: http://kb.sagesoftwareonline.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/23934 that starts Act!
So far it's working after several reboots, other users can access Act! Without me starting SQL manually.
