Although I agree with the other posters in that if all you want is to reboot the computer you should just use shutdown.exe, if you need a Perl solution (say for the end of a Perl script in which you desire a reboot), this is what I use:
Win32::InitiateSystemShutdown( '', "\nAction Complete.\n\nSystem will now Reboot\!", 20, 0, 1 );
This is exactly what I am looking for! Thanks!
As mentionedby others, "run shutdown.exe", I was unable to find shutdown.exe on any WIN2K box that I have encountered.
So.... the Win32::InitiateSystemShutdown routine works perfectly!
