I have a Smartboard projector that has a web server which can be accessed to control the projector. I would like to have a program or script which will bring up the web page and push a power on or power off button on the web page.  I would use the Task Scheduler to run this program or script.

more sophisticated would be checking the projectors website with fiddler and check witch HTTP POST or GET is actually being sent to the device and reissue that with WSH or Powershell
