Goal:

Reboot a remote (W7-client with PSv5) computer and notify the currently logged on user and show a countdown in minutes.

Restrictions:
only WMI or Registry ( Powershell Remoting will only work 90% of the time )

What I have tried to do:
I would like leverage the build in SCCM client functionality with give's a nice user experience.
Only I got stuck at changing the WMI Properties.
This command (Methode) give's the reboot Status:

$Status = Invoke-WmiMethod -Namespace "ROOT\ccm\ClientSDK" -Class CCM_ClientUtilities -Name DetermineIfRebootPending -EnableAllPrivileges  
$Status
__GENUS             : 1
__CLASS             : __PARAMETERS
__SUPERCLASS        : 
__DYNASTY           : __PARAMETERS
__RELPATH           : __PARAMETERS
__PROPERTY_COUNT    : 7
__DERIVATION        : {}
__SERVER            : MyPSComputer
__NAMESPACE         : ROOT\ccm\ClientSDK
__PATH              : \\ MyPSComputer\ROOT\ccm\ClientSDK:__PARAMETERS
DisableHideTime     : 19700101010000.000000+000
InGracePeriod       : False
IsHardRebootPending : False
NotifyUI            : False
RebootDeadline      : 19700101010000.000000+000
RebootPending       : False
ReturnValue         : 0
PSComputerName      : MyPSComputer 

I would like to Set the following settings:

$Status.IsHardRebootPending = $True
$Status.NotifyUI = $True
$Status.RebootDeadline = [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeConverter]::ToDmtfDateTime($(get-date).AddMinutes(15)) 

Only this Object those not have a .Put() Methode.
And seems I can use can't use this either:

Set-WmiInstance -Namespace "ROOT\ccm\ClientSDK" -Class CCM_ClientUtilities -PutType UpdateOnly -EnableAllPrivileges -Arguments @{IsHardRebootPending = $True} 

Other Options:

1. Shutdown.exe Only the Balloon Icons sucks and user will miss it.
2. Maybe the Windows Update Reboot Req Timer, only can find information about this option.
3. Msg.exe only this is nice ether.

Any help would really be great!

And the Get-member info:
