    You could use shutdown app that comes with Windows. On Windows x86 it resides in C:\Windows\System32 folder. For example, command "shutdown /r /t 86400" will restart computer in a days time.

    Or use some 3rd party application like Windows Reboot.

    Auto PowerOn / Shutdown is also a good option... Along with shutdown/restart at predefined times, it has a feature to start the PC from hibernation at a scheduled time.. although it doesnt work properly in Windows 7 64bit.

    estra I am also thinking of it but the worst part of it is the warning dialogue box which I don't want. But I found a workaround for it

    @riteshk I am not quite getting you... If you want to do it manually anyway then just press the power on switch to revoke it The automation feature is actually the key here right dude?
