    Re: Force PCs to restart on certain time

    Do you want the PC to reboot (restart) or do you want to be able to boot (start) a PC that is turned off, at a set (certain) time of the day?
    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

        I want to be able to reboot, let say 2:00am , but I want to create a GPO to enable this.

          I dont think this is possible. Only way I found out how to do it was to create a scheduled task to run that batch file I posted at a certain time every day.

              I wanted to tell you that I didn't find any way to schedule a job through GPO. I tried to copy a predefined scheduled task from a network share to every user's Scheduled Tasks folder, but the task won't run (looks like a permissions issue, but I'm not sure).
              Good luck.
