How do I schedule a task so that my Win2k workstation will shut down automatically at midnight every

I want to schedule a task so that my Windows 2000 workstation will shut down every night at 12:00 a.m. automatically. How can I do this?
You need the resource kit utility called Shutdown.exe. This tool might also come with the support tools in the SupportTools folder of your original CD. It does come with the Windows XP support tools. Then, schedule a task to run the command "shutdown -r" at midnight.
