How to stop and start MySQL service automatically at certain time?

I'm new to MySQL, and was hopping to find out how I can stop the service at 10am and start it at 2pm automatically in a batch file. Please let me know...
Thanks in advance!

That depends on your OS. On Windows, you can create a scheduled task. I'm sure linux, unix, and mac osx has similar functionality in their OS.

Hi Rabbit,

Thanks for your quick response. MySQL db is running with Windows 7. how can I stop the service at 9:00 am then bring it back on at 12:00pm. I'd like this to happen on a daily bases. I guess creating a batch file would be the ideal way to go, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks again!

You certainly could use a batch file. Just use the task scheduler to run it at the times you want.
