If you have the NT Resource Kit, you should be able to use shutdown.exe in combination with the command scheduler to do this. I have never used it myself in this manner, but I've seen references to doing this in a number of places, including Microsoft's newsgroups. Hope this helps!

You can use the shutdown.exe utility that is in the resource kit but I can tell you from personal experience that it is not 100% reliable when used in conjuntion with the scheduler. Also you have to add additional parameters to close programs and reboot the server. If you forget these parameters then your server will just shut down. Not a good thing! I have found a better utility called reboot32. This is a free utility that automatically closes programs and reboots the server. It is 100% reliable. I can e-mail it to you with instuctions. My e-mail is del.smith@usoncology.com.

P.S. - "Will work for points!"

You can also create a batch job and use the AT commands to schedule the shutdown. I've done this for Exchange services and it works great.
