Yes. There are products that will monitor that kind of thing for you. I've used "What's Up Gold" for that kind of monitoring before. It has several competitor products, and they all have advantages and drawbacks.

I can't think of any way that a specific server can alert you that it's services have shut down. You will need to use a process where an external server monitors it, such as the third party tools that GSquared mentions.

Now if you want to know when it starts back up, you could create a job with a schedule set to run when the SQL Server Agent starts to send an email/alert, etc.

You could create an ssis package and try and connect, if it does not respond the step fails and you then have an on fail step to insert into a table. I use a foreach loop container and check all the prod servers this way, if one does not respond an email alert is sent.

We have NetIQ and another in-house built app to perform those duties.

I have also tested What's Up Gold and Diagnostic Manager. Both seem fine as well.
