    Slawdog has been rated by different sites as being a good program. Your question though is
    How do I get my computer to reboot automatically every day at the same time?
    Slawdog does not, I believe, boot up a PC, just shuts it down as reflected in it's full name Slawdog Smart Shutdown.

    and here's another one that's part of the operating system.

    shutdown -r -f -t XX

    Just save that in a notepad file and name the file "forceboot.cmd" (WITH QUOTES!) and save it on the C: drive somewhere. Make sure to change XX to the amount of time in seconds you would like it to wait to reboot.

    Now, open the task scheduler (start menu > control panel > Scheduled Tasks) and schedule that program to run whenever you want.

    one thing to note: to run a scheduled task, the username that you are currently logged in as MUST be an administrator account and it MUST have a password associated with it or it won't work.
