I have a windows 2008 r2 server and I want to set it to auto reboot every saturday night.  What is the best way to do this?  Also, would I be able to see a log file of the reboot the next day to make sure it is rebooting?

You can use the task scheduler with the command

shutdown /r /t 1

The "eventlog" source in the system eventvwr will always show it's been rebooted.

Personally, I throw in a messaging app in the task scheduler was well at the trigger "when the computer starts", so I receive a message on my phone on my Telegram. so I never check the event log.

Does the shutdown /r/t 1 command shutdown the computer or reboot it?  Just making sure.

you forgot a space:

shutdown /r /t 1

Reboots the computer within 1 seconds

For shutdown, use:
shutdown /s /t 1
