If you have the 2000 resource kit you can use the restart.vbs file.

This is how to use it.

useage:
cscript  Restart.vbs    /S <server> [/U <username>] [/W password>]
                 [/O <outputfile>] [/L} [/P] [/R] [/Q] [/F] [/T <time in seconds>]

/T            Amount of time to perform the function."
/Q            Perform Shutdown."
/P            Perform Poweroff."
/R            Perform Reboot."
/L            Perform Logoff."
/F            Force Function."
server        A machine name."
username      The current user's name."
password      Password of the current user."
outputfile    The output file name."

Or you could use shutdown.exe from the resource kit.

He, DeTavio...

I'm in agreement with Steinmto's first comment; you can use restart.vbs/r to reboot your system as needed.

Once you have d/loaded this file from the provided link above, you'll need to set up a scheduled task to have it run at 3am, using the scheduled tasks wizard (start> programs> accessories> system_tools> scheduled_tasks).

Points to Steinmto when tested.
