    I could not find this anywhere, don't kill me.

    I run my backup script at midnight everynight, which requires that my machine is left on...all the time.

    Is there a way to write an Applescript to sleep the machine at 1 a.m.?

    No need for a script:

    go into apple menu

    system preferences :

    energy saver

    at the bottom of the screen it say's schedule

    click that and set sleep/wake

    Thanks again - I set my backup to run at midnight every day and an hour later the machine sleeps.

    Sweet. :D
