AP3610-1 Scheduled Reboot

I need to schedule reboots for my AP3610 APs.  I found this guide on the Hub but the AP I'm testing with does not seem to recognize/utilize keys for SSH authentication and forces the use of a passphrase.  Following a lead from a response to that post, I tried to use expect instead of bash so I could just pass the passphrase, but expect is not present on my controller.  Finally, the AP3610 is not listed in the AP > Global Settings > AP Maintenance Cycle utility.  

So...  How can I schedule reboots for the AP3610s?  I'm working on replacing them all, but for now I need to work around their quirks.

I believe you should have an option "Maintenance Cycle" in AP-->Global-->Maintanance-->AP Maintanance cycle (might be a bit different path in v9) in the GUI . 
If you don't like that for some reason , you can use any PC (linux or windows) which can run expect , I can give you the script to automate it .

The AP3610 is not a listed platform in the AP Maintenance Cycle.  I'd appreciate a script.  I would prefer to run it from a controller, but I could try a different machine.

Just as an aside, there doesn't seem to be an option to schedule reboots for one or a group of selected APs.  In Bulk Configuration I can select just one or a few APs and reboot; can that operation be scheduled?

What code are you running on the controller?
