    Go to System Preferences > Energy Saver then click on "Schedule..."

    You can schedule startup/wake and shutdown/sleep.

    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.

    I was going to suggest Aurora. It claims it'll even turn the computer on if it's off (but it has to be open).

    as gr8tfly suggested, this can be done in the energy saver system preference. it'll even turn on your mac when you want.

    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.

    Awaken does it too....but you need to pay for it. So go Aurora.

    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.
