I'd like Vista to reboot everynight. Ideally, after it rebooted it would open up all my apps so that when I log back in in the morning I don't have to restart everything. Is this possible?

Schedule a task that executes the following command: shutdown /r /f /t 0

Restarting your applications should be a matter of just adding them to your start-up folder.

Will application in my start-up folder be started when the system reboots, or only when I login for the first time after it reboots? I'd really like them to be started up before I log in (not sure if this is possible in Windows) as a couple of the apps take a while to start up. If it isn't possible, I'll still accept your answer. –  dtauzell Apr 6 '11 at 0:13
    
Every time, when you log in. It's not possible to do that prior to login, an option could be to automatically login and create a batch file that automatically locks your account afterwards... –  Tom Wijsman Apr 6 '11 at 0:21
