Auto Restart? of iMac G4s running 10.4

    In a Mac Lab of 25 iMac G4s, the use of Energy Saver to schedule a
    shutdown and boot does not succeed most of the time due to
    applications left running. Is there a better way to do this with
    cron? The iMac G4s boot off their own internal disk.

    If I just do a shutdown at for example 12:00 midnight and do a startup
    at 7:00 AM, is there any reason why this would not succeed? What if a
    was in this open access lab at midnight with open files? Is there a
    way from a cronjob to check when the computer was last used
    interactively or would this only reveal the last time it was used from
    the shell and not from the Finder?

    Many thanks.
