Scheduled server – or PC reboot

Create a batch file (call it Reboot.cmd for example) with the following content:

Shutdown /r /f

Create a Scheduled Task, where you call this Reboot.cmd, Run As a user with local administrator rights, set a Schedule, and you are done.

Note: check if the Shutdown command is available on the Windows version you are using (Cmd, Shutdown /?).  For older Windows versions you may not find the Shutdown command.  You can find it in the Windows Resource Kit.  See for more information.
