    I believe you can get Sliverkeeper to backup automatically, see the screenshot for more details

    As you want to switch on your external HD you can set up a new Event in iCal and in the drawer on the Right it should have an option marked repeat, just set that to repeat daily, at the time you want.

    Open iCal, and click on Monday in the calendar. Pick New Event from the file menu, and the drawer should pop out if it isn't open already. You'll see the options for setting a time, repeat frequency, and alarm type right in there.
