      use shutdown.exe from the resource kit and then use windows scheduler to schedule the reboot.

      Answer 1 will work. However, it is always good practice to have your server connected to a UPS. Most UPS’s come with software that will gracefully shut down a server in the event of a power outage. Additionally, the software will also allow you to schedule shutdowns. If you do not have your server connected to this type of UPS, I would suggest the investment. The alternative could be data loss or a system crash.
