Start service using batch file

Running Small Business Server 2008 on ML350 G5 server.
I need to start a service at a certain time each day.  I am not a computer expert.  I have created a batch file which will start the service at 02:00 am.  However, it needs to run as administrator.  Somehow I need to elevate the privilege .  I like my sleep and I don't want to wake up at 02:00 and elevate the batch file .   Someone must have figured out how to do this.

Remember, I am not an expert so please provide detailed instructions on how to raise the privilege so this batch file can run.  Thank you for your help.
