Windows 2003 Informational Question

I would like to know if there are any compelling reasons to reboot a Windows 2003 server on a regular basis. I thought memory leaks were basically a thing of the past.  If the server is having no issues, why would you want to schedule reboots?  I've been told it's a security issue, but see no good security reasons for it either.
Thanks.

the only reason really to restart is if you have installed a new program or installed security updates from microsoft updates. which actually requires a reboot before being able to update further..
i usually schedule them once needed after a microsoft update. as it will not allow any futher updates to occur.

No good reason at all to reboot the server periodically. Windows NT used to benefit from periodic reboots, but Windows 2000,2003 and 2008 do not require this.
