Right Click on My Computer, Select Properties, Adavanced. Under Startup select SETTINGS and tick automatically restart.
There may also be a setting in the BIOS to themm the machine what to do when power is restored - select Always ON (on simiar wording)

This only helps me if the machine has a dump to take.  What I'd like to do is schedule a restart every Saturday night or so.  Again, unattended.

No, I haven't tried any scripts.  Could you point me in the right direction?  Thanks.

You can use the command eg:
shutdown /r /f /m \\MyServer
and schedule it.

KCTS, could you tell me or point me to somewhere where I could learn a little more about the above mentioned syntax?  If I'm reading it correctly, I could create a small .bat file then schedule it to run with Windows Task Scheduler, sound right?
