How can I “reboot into” the non-default operating system in a dual-boot configuration?

I'm using a wireless keyboard via bluetooth and therefore cannot use it in grub, so I have to plug in an USB keyboard everytime I want to boot into Windows. AFAK Apple solved this problem by adding adding functions such as "Boot to MacOSX" in the Boot Camp control panel (iMacs come with Bluetooth mice and keyboard) so I was wondering weather it's possible to tell grub to boot Windows next time (and maybe even tell it from Windows to boot Linux next time)

Now I just need a reliable way to figure out the menu entry number.. –  Nils Mar 3 '11 at 19:37
    
Just read that I also can type in the exact name of the menu entry. So how can I change it that I just can type grub-reboot win? –  Nils Mar 3 '11 at 19:42

sudo vi /boot/grub/menu.lst (or replace vi with editor of choice) –  Wolfger Mar 3 '11 at 19:45

Actually, I've just noticed I'm behind the times... Check ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1195275 if you're running 9.10 or later version of Ubuntu –  Wolfger Mar 3 '11 at 19:47
