Its most certainly possible for a script to run at the same time every day. Many users like CronniX which is a aqua frontend for the unix tool cron. It would allow you to schedule your script to run every morning at a certain time. However, it is a little more complex than the simplest method. You can attach an applescript to an ical event. So if you just had an event in your ical every morning at a certain time, and attached the script to it, it would run. Good Luck!

Why not just setup the power management to put it to sleep on idle? Then you don't have to argue with the programs and (bonus) when you return just giggle the mouse and return where you left off.
Or, if you want to play with a heavy hand and really don't want to discuss the issue with those chatty apps you can use the unix command 'shutdown' in root's cron. It's not very polite, but it does the job.
