PCAnywhere has it's problems.

The easiest way to reboot a remote PC, asumming that:
- You have admin permissions based on the account you use on you own PC
- the PC is still responsive

from your own XP workstation run:
<b> shutdown -r -m \\pcname </b>

If your local account does not have admin priviliges on the remote pc, try psshtdown
