How often do you reboot your Windows servers? (I know there are limitless use types and each use may warrant a different answer, but just generally...)
Do you automate the process? If so do you just use scheduled tasks or something more?

When I apply updates, otherwise I don't.
No It's not automated.
When possible, I like weekly and fully automated via local script. Local because it will reboot itself even if all management systems have failed.
On Linux, I like to use a cronjob, for example. We do a full system update and then reboot so that we know it's got the latest patches just before the weekly reboot.
I like weekly for several reasons, but the biggest is because it is predictable and easy to understand. Monthly or lunar monthly is easy to forget.
I reboot everything Monthly when I apply Windows updates.
The non-Windows stuff gets updates sooner (dnf-automatic/yum-cron) but I do not bother to reboot them until I am in the Widows VMs to do the same.
I also reboot the Hypervisor at that time.
I do not usually reboot switches and routers, just because they are stable because of the design.

I reboot them every month for WIndows Updates. There is always a maintenance time for us so our customers are aware.
Mostly the process is automated through GPO in Windows, for Linux security updates are done via cronjob.
