how to log in to a windows 7 automatically when it reboots from a script

I have a windows 7 professional computer that serves as a "server" for a small business.  I want to control the server computer remotely using a remote desktop connection when I'm connected to the network, and when I am at a remote location using the internet.  FYI, I can access the computer remotely using TeamViewer now.

I have a script that runs on the server to reboot every night, but I do not have a password protected account on that computer.  I'd like to keep that script to reboot every night, have a password protected log-in that completes with the script, and be able to establish a remote desktop connection using Windows 7 Pro when on the network and remotely.

I guess the crux of the issue with the current set-up is, how do I establish a password protected account on the server and write a script (or something) that will allow it to automatically reboot - i.e. log-in - every night?
