    You could just make a script to do it. I'm not sure which operating system you're using though, so I can't really help you out.

    I actually think thats going to be a implemented feature on Windows 7....

    But any case, just search Download.com.

    I think there's a bios setting that will turn on your computer at a certain time. It's on my laptop.

    I've also heard stories of people managing to hook up their computers to an alarm clock.

    Well, the reboot command is "shutdown /r"
    I'm not sure about the timed part though.

    Code:
    @@echo off
    title Shutdown
    shutdown -r -f -t 15 -c "Comment here"
    exit
    Save it as somename.bat (REMEMBER .BAT!)

    Where "15" is the time to shutdown (seconds), so 120 is = to 2 minutes.

    Mac OS X has this native. I think Windows Vista/7 does too doesn't it?

    What y0u kn0w said.

    Code:
    [COLOR=Red]@echo off
    title "TITLE"
    shutdown -r -f -t "TIME OF SHUTDOWN"[/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue]-c "Comment here"[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=Red]exit[/COLOR]
    Red = Needed
    Blue = Not needed

    This isn't cancel-able, without this code:
    Code:
    [COLOR=Navy]shutdown -a[/COLOR]
