Wish there could be some sort of reboot timer

Hello Rob,

Thank you for your message.

Please clarify if you want to restart the remote machine on a countdown in the Power Control mode?  If yes - unfortunately, there's no possibility to do it, because it is only shown in the Viewer when the Host is online.
If you mean anything else, could you please elaborate a bit more on the question?

Looking forward to your reply.

Let's say that a reboot is needed but it can't  reboot until 11:00 pm after I am asleep and it HAS to be rebooted before the users come in the next morning. While in the host, Let's say around 6:00 pm, would it be possible to set a timer so that it forces a reboot at 11:01 pm?

Hello Rob,

Thank you for clarification.

Unfortunately, we do not plan to add this feature.
However, there is a Task Scheduler application, which is a part of Microsoft Windows: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Task_Scheduler
You can try scheduling a reboot with PowerShell.

Let us know if you have more questions.
