[ubuntu-uk] Scheduling a reboot of Ubuntu?

I'd like to schedule a reboot of my Ubuntu server.
When I type sudo crontab -l at the prompt, the following is displayed:
#m h dom mon dow command
40 12 * * 0-7 eprints reboot
As I understand it, this should mean that at 40 minutes past 12 each day
the user eprints will issue the command reboot.
The problem is, nothing appears to be happening.
Do I need to specify the user?
Should the entries be separated by spaces, or tabs?
Any advice gratefully received.
