    How to schedule windows to restart at certain time?

    Ok, I did search on the net about this, but could not find any workable solution.

    Conventional method with task scheduler does not work without username and password being used. As i don't use logon password for my username, I can't get this working.

    Can anybody out there please help me out with this, possibly without installing any third party software within windows.

    TIA,

    ITman

    I can't see anyway for a software app to turn on a system when it's off.

    STR (Suspend to RAM) could be used, so the system is effectively powered down, and brought out of suspend mode when requested. The motherboard + system would need to support it though - STR is flakey at best :S

    You need something to send a magic packet to a wake on lan enabled motherboard. My old PCCHIPS 810lmr had one but I never got round to playing with it. I assume you can send a magic packet from another PC without any special hardware.
