Youngster: Are you using Win 7? Can u b a little more detailed about how to make the shorcut? I have tried with no success. Thanks!
Start, run, type: 'notepad' and click ok
Enter the commands into notepad.... in this case lets make it
shutdown /r /t 0
then go to file, save as...
select at the bottom 'save as file type' change this to "all files" - this is important
and name your file... lets say reboot.bat - the name is irrelevant as long as you have .bat at the end.
im assuming you chose to save this file on your desktop... all you have to do now is click on it, like a normal program, and the commands will be executed
best of luck ^^
