If the problem could be fixed by a reboot, could you just schedule  
one nightly (or weekly?) at 5am. Seems like this would be a big help,  
without regard to Dnet.

I think there is a method to schedule a windows reboot that will  
allow a user to cancel it (screen popup) if someone happens to be  
there at 5am.  (our students get a key code, so they can use our lab  
at any time)
