Do you have windows server 2012 R2 ??

Or you can try with powershell:

$time = 120
$server = "mycomputer"
$comment = "this is my comment."
$reboot = @("/r", "/t", $time, "/m", "\\$server", "/c", $comment)

& shutdown $reboot

Open in new window

The comment you refer to is the comment shown before rebooting. It will not appear anywhere persistent. If you initiate a manual reboot, it will be performed immediately. So the question is what you really want to do?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Use shutdown /i. On my systems any additional parameter gets ignored, sadly, so you have to provide all options in the GUI part, including the machine to reboot.
