    I just got this from another site, and just think it's too good to keep to myself

    In notepad, copy this SHUTDOWN -r -t 01, save it as reboot.bat in the windows directory.
    Now create a new scheduled task in task scheduler named reboot and point it to c:\windows\reboot.bat and set it for whatever time you'd like.

    should make your morning a little more pleasant

    When you setting up the scheduled task, make sure you designate a user account that has permisson to shutdown the computer.

    What does a reboot do for me other than reclaim RAM? (There are a boatload of ways to reclaim RAM faster than a reboot.)

    this tweak is intended to boot your computor for you at a specific time, so it's ready before you get there
