    I know that this is not specifically a Mac question but I thought there might be a few in here that will have enough technical software experience to get me pointed in the right direction.

    My question is this: Are you aware of software that would automatically sign into a (program, site, application etc....) at the same pre-determined times each day once installed?

    any assistance would be helpful at this point.

    It's possible to do this (via some type of scripting), but I'm not aware of commercially available software that does this for a wide assortment of sites, applications, etc.

    I think there are examples of software that are built to do specialized tasks that may involve "signing in". For example, email clients that will periodically talk to the server to retrieve/send mail. Mail clients are usually relatively scheduled (i.e. every 5 minutes after the program started), not absolutely scheduled (at 5:00 pm).
