In OS 9 I remember how to get the computer to start up and shut down at certain times, and I want to do this in OS X but I can't figure out how. I want to fold overnight, so I need my computer to start up at 1:00AM every night. How would I do this in OS X?

Or try something like iBeeZz (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/17991).

Why not just leave your machine on all the time?

Well most of the time I will, but half the time my computers in my room and its easier to get to sleep without it on... maybe I could get used to it though.

And I also wanted to know how to do this for my school, because they shut the emacs down every night, so I could have them fold from like 10:00 PM to 6:00AM every night without people shutting them off.
