Here is an article about how to do it using built-in OS X tools.

I've also heard decent things about Aurora if you prefer a packaged app.

Aurora works wonderfully, my MBP is now my alarm clock. It wakes it up from sleep, but the only downside is that the laptop must be open. So no closing the lid to put it to sleep.

As for actually starting up the computer from shut down, I haven't tried yet.

I'll throw in another vote for Aurora. I've used it in the past and it's excellent. Most (if not all) of the functionality of Awaken and for free. Can't go wrong.
