set date.
set time
delete temp files from temp directory
logoff :-))
start processes / programs
.....
just about anything you can do with programs that provide a command-line
interface

try http://cwashington.netreach.net for some ideas (and I'm sure there are
plenty others to find)
googling for 'scripting examples' might get you some ;-)

To partially quote the following Microsoft Documentation:

TechNet Home | Community | events
TechNet Briefings Presentations
Automating Administrative Tasks
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/events/serve...

"Logon scripts are frequently used to map network drives, start
background processes, and initialize user environment
variables... Although a logon script is typically a batch file
(.bat extension), any executable program (.exe extension) can
also be used."

Given the fact that "a logon script is ... a batch file", means
that they can perform any of a myriad administration tasks.

As for resources in Scripting...

- See the following Web Page that describes itself as: "one-stop
shopping for system administrators wanting to manage their
Windows computers using Microsoft's scripting technologies"

Microsoft TechNet
Welcome to the Script Center
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/scriptcenter...

NOTE: Once the "Welcome to the Script Center" Web Page is
loaded, you can use the TechNet "Search for" box to search to
scripts on a particular topic. And if you add the following word
to your query the results will be mostly sample scripts:

scriptcenter

For example, if you are interested in sample scripts on the topic
of enumerating environment variables, submit the following query:
