SQL Server Temp Database Management

I would like to run a maintenance command overnight on the SQL Server, that manages the size of the temp database. Is this possible?
– You need a stop/start to downsize it. – I wouldn’t downsize tempdb because it materializes your sql-workspace, so maybe the next day your server will suffer file-extentions to everyboddy’s regret ! (unless offcourse it grew due to exceptional stuff)

What kind of maintenance are talking about? If you are thinking of shriking tempdb… read the following article…but becareful about the impact on your server when it grows as Alzdba mentioned… http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/307487?wa=wsignin1.0
