Run shutdown.exe in batch file while logged off doesn't work? - Windows Setup, Administration & Security

Hi folks, I'm trying to use the shutdown.exe in a batch file to reboot the computer at a predesignated time, but XP doesn't want to shutdown if you're not logged on! Does anyone know how to get XP to shutdown & reboot via batch file without needing to be logged on??? Thanks. Craig...

    I've seen the same problem. User logs off at the end of hte afternoon, AV scan is scheduled to run during the evening; then I want computer to shut down - but it doesn't!

    So how can I schedule a shutdown **AFTER** user has logged off?
