CoreTemp overheat protection problem

I have CoreTemp run with windows, and tried setting it up so that if my core temp gets to 61c it will put my pc in sleep mode.

I have also set it to run a batch file to kill prime95 if it gets to a certain temp when am torture testing.

However, every time the pc is rebooted, the set temperature is lost, and it goes back to "critical temperature" which it seems to think is around 40ish c!

How can I force CoreTemp to use MY setting and not what it thinks is a critical temp, or how can I setup the critical temp?
