Scripts to close open files and reboot

Hi
So I need to have a script that I can create a shortcut to so when I double click it closes all open files on a remote windows 2008 r2 server, reboots that server and notifies 3 email addresses that server is back up.

Cheers

Files closing will happen by itself, though it won't cleanly close whatever app has them open for a user on their PC of course with a shared file open.

@echo off
shutdown /m \\remoteserver /r /t 15 /c "Rebooted remotely" /d p:0:0  (or other params as you want see shutdown -?)

Someone else can sort out the emailing if wanted, late was just shutting down PC.....  would monitor PING output and then send a message with a short VBScript, something like this script of mine here:
