If you use Hibernation rather than turn off your computer you can schedule it to wake at a specific time.

Go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> Scheduled Tasks.

Double click Add Scheduled Task to launch the Schedule Task Wizard.

Click Next to choose the program that you wish to use when the computer wakes up, then click Next.

From the next three pages choose the Daily option and time that you want to wake the system, then add your username and password.

On the last page, select the Open Advanced Properties check box and click Finish.

When you see the Properties dialog box for the scheduled task, choose the Setting tab and select the Wake The Computer To Run This Task check box. Then click on OK.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
