Windows Server 2003 Auto Restart

I have multiple Windows Server 2003 machines in multiple locations.  I'm trying to figure out a way to run a batch file that will auto restart the servers at a specific time.  

I've tried everything from "shutdown /r" all the way to "shutdown /r /t 60 /c "Nightly Shutdown" /f /d p:4:1".  It works at the command line, but when I setup a scheduled event to run the batch file the command just rolls on a command prompt window until I manually close it.

Any Ideas m8's :)

I took a look at this, does Microsoft really expect us to pay for a hotfix?  Unless I'm reading incorrectly MS want us to pay for support just to get this hotfix...  Ewwwwwwww :(
