Automatic Restart

nickr584
How can I make a computer re-start automatically at the same time everyday?

We are running with XP, have a server that everyone needs to log into.

Would this have to be set up on the server side? or can I just do set it up from the PC?

    Set up a scheduled task on each workstation, and make a batchfile with this as the contents

    <pre>
    shutdown /r /f /p /d p:0:0 /c "Reason for Restart"
    </pre>

    At least I think that's what it is....
    If you want to give the user time to save their work first, add /t and a number (example, /t 30, gives 30 seconds).
