Hello Abbigailantonia,

You can set a reboot by scheduling a task. Just go to control panel and then click on schedule task. Then enter task thereby entering a time and specific data related to reboot the system. The task will run automatically and it will reboot your system.

Good day!

If you can auto shutdown in your home server, you could also schedule a reboot by doing these steps:
 
A. Launch your server's task scheduler by clicking Start then typing "task" then hit enter then launch Task Scheduler MMC.
B. Choose Task Scheduler Library then locate and click "Create Task".
C. This will launch the "Create Task Dialog" box, Locate the "General" Tab then type "Reboot" in the name, write also a short summary to describe the task then choose "Run whether user is logged on or not" radio button.
D. Now from "General" tab, locate and click "Triggers" tab then click "New" button. This will open "Edit Trigger" dialog box, then choose "On a schedule" then choose  the "Monthly" radio button then finish the settings on your preferences.
E. Tick the Enable box in the Advanced settings then Un-tick all other advanced settings then click OK.
F. Now from "Triggers" tab, locate and click the "Actions" tab then click "New" button, this will cause to launch the "New Action" dialog box, select "start a program", the type "shutdown" in the program/script field then type "/r" and "/f" in the "add arguments" field. Click ok.
G. Now from "Actions" tab, locate and click "Conditions" tab, then untick all the boxes.
H. Now from "Conditions" tab, locate and click "settings" tab, Untick all the boxes then select "Do not start a new instance" then hit OK.
 
Then there you are! Auto reboot.
 
Hope I have helped you!
 
Take care!
