    I can get my XP SP2 to shutdown via the Task Scheduler and will restart using
    the -r parameter, but Windows is requiring a log in. I'm the sole user and
    listed admin for the machine, abd don't normally use a password but the Task
    Scheduler required the password for log in to enable it to run. Is there a
    work around the password?? I'd like this to run in a hands off fashion.

    I'm not quite sure what your asking, but I got around the password and
    restart by creating a shortcut on the desktop and giving it the name=
    %windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -r -t 0 (copy and paste it ) and then
    installed the Tweak-UI XP powertoy for XP and configured it for auto log on,
    on the log on tab. Hope this helps some.>
