We'd love to see FIlewave add the ability to remotely reboot iOS devices. We have a testing vendor that recommends we reboot all iPads after each session of state standardized testing. It would be nice to schedule or trigger a reboot of all devices overnight, rather than relying on teachers to do it manually on hundreds of devices.

There is unfortunately no way to do it via the MDM protocol - in Apple world, the end user is still the most central piece (even if, with DEP and supervised devices, the organization owning the device is getting more and more important).

That said, I'll raise the question to our Apple Care. My guess is that I'll have to open a feature request in bugreport.apple.com and encourage you to do the same.
