Using Group Policy to Run Defrag or Disk Cleanup

Is it possible to run disk defrag and disk cleanup using Group Policy?  I searched the entire policy listings, all 3900 and could find no such settings.

But before I declare it not possible, I wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything.  Not interested in using a script, 3rd party applications, or anything else.  If there is no way to do it using a group policy setting, then just need to know for sure.

I don't think it's possible as the programs to my knowledge require interaction from the user and isn't possible to launch via syntax.  I think you may end up needing to run it manually or check out Diskeeper or another program like that.
