In this guide, you will learn how to set up an automated task to reboot your VPS every weekend.

The reason to do this is to keep your system clean and stable when you’re trading. This reboot is recommended for weekends because the markets are offline, and you won’t miss out on any opportunities if you’re Expert-Advisor-trading.

In addition, Windows Updates might require a restart to be installed.


1. Log into your VPS.

2. Click on Start, type “Task Scheduler”, and select the option at the top of the list.

3. Click on “Create Task”

4. Name your task something you can remember, “Weekend Reboot,” for example.

5. Go to the “Triggers” tab and click on “New”.

6. Configure the schedule:

  • 1 Select the recurrence ( weekly),
  • 2 select the day
  • 3 set the time

then press “OK.”

7. Go to the “Actions” tab and click on “New”.

8. Edit Action:

  • Under Program/script type Shutdown (1)
  • In the “Add arguments” field (2), type /r

Then Pres OK

That’s it! Your VPS will automatically reboot every weekend
