Is there a GPO that can be applied to our WSUS GPO, OU group that schedules multiple reboot?  We would like the server to reboot again if required from another patch.

No, you would have to create a scheduled task.

Hi dstewartjr, Thanks I thought that may be the case.  I thought there was a setting that had the ability to after the download is complete that you can delay the reboot for a specified time, Sundays only etc??

Yes, you can delay for certain amount of time in minutes, but there is no guarantee of when that "clock" starts.
