VM won't do autostart - help needed

I used to have QEMU/KVM and Virtual Machine Manager running on ubuntu 16.04
and used to start my VM from crontab as:

@reboot sleep 30 && virsh start WINDOWS10

After upgrading to ubuntu 18.04 this stopped working, with error:

error: failed to get domain 'WINDOWS10'
error: Domain not found: no domain with matching name 'WINDOWS10'

Running command as "virsh start WINDOWS10" works fine.

I am trying to use Virtual Machine Manager to autostart my VM and it simply
does not work.

Here is more info on the VM:

virsh dominfo WINDOWS10
Id:             2

Used memory:    8192000 KiB

Security model: apparmor
Security DOI:   0
Security label: libvirt-32faf348-f54e-445a-90cc-e64d28d9d396 (enforcing)

Sounds like a bug to me.
Any help appreciated.
