in thread Can't call method "click" on an undefined value

That is impossible.
1. The html is broken (no form tags), which is why there is no default form, to be set as default, or for you to select (via $mech->form_name or $mech->form_number), and why $mech->click doesn't work. This is a bug in WWW::Mechanize, it should throw a useful error messages, example
use WWW::Mechanize; $ua=WWW::Mechanize->new; $ua->get('http://search.cpan.org');#got a form warn $ua->forms; warn $ua->submit; $ua->get('http://cpan.org');#no forms here warn $ua->forms; warn $ua->submit; #dies here __END__ HTML::Form=HASH(0x1d76ca0) at - line 6. HTTP::Response=HASH(0x1d77114) at - line 7. Warning: something's wrong at - line 9. Can't call method "make_request" on an undefined value at D:/Perl/site +/lib/WWW/Mechanize.pm line 1641.
2. Clicking the button calls javascript, which is not supported (see WWW::Mechanize::FAQ). Besides, the javascript only redirects to rebootinfo.cgi (and it does that with eval -- whoever wrote this should be shot).
