Hi,

I am trying to shedule a daily reboot on a WIndows 7 64bit machine.

I have setup my task in task manager. The PC reboots at the scheluled time the first time only, and then never reboots again. There is no message I can see about the task failing.

I created a file called reboot.bat  tha contians "shutdown /r" and then set it to run daily. When I run it manually through task manager it runs.

I have tried running taksmanager for setting up the task as both administrator and regular user. Seems to make no difference.
