Does anyone have a scheduled restart on their HTPC? Now that mine is running well I never restart it or shut it down. It goes to sleep and wakes up, of course, but never a full power cycle.

Is there a good reason to have a scheduled restart? What is the best way to schedule it?

Mine runs very well too but I do a nightly re-boot to flush the cache.

It is a task in Task Scheduler. Here's an illustrated guide.

Mine does not restart of shutdown either unless a patch requires it. I don't see any reasons to do it at all. The only surprises you may encounter are either your BIOS has corrupted (I have multiple occasions on a Gigabyte MoBo, so never buy another Gigabyte) or your hard drive is failing that can no longer boot. Both of which result in a dead machine that you don't know until you did a reboot smile.gif

I've considered taking it out. I don't think there's a reason for it any longer either.
