This is very easy to accomplish with powershell. 2 different commands...
Friday Code
Get-Service -Name <service name> | Stop-Service
Set-Service -Name <service name> -StartupType "Manual"

Open in new window


Saturday Code
Set-Service -Name <service name> -StartupType "automatic" | shutdown -r -t 01

Open in new window


Then create 2 scheduled tasks for each script. Set the parameters accordingly.

Program to Launch should look like below...
 Program = powershell.exe
Arguments = -file c:\scriptslocation\script.ps1

Will.
