I'm guessing here:
- automatic shutdown - can you put something in the task manager?
- automatic startup - possibly a function in the BIOS? or use one of the "wake on ring" or "wake on LAN" functions?

Newer ACPI BIOS have an auto start timer available. You can use that for the startup timer.

For timed shutdown, I'd download and install KirbyAlarm from www.kirbyfooty.com, it works a bit better than Task Scheduler in Windows. Use an appropriate shutdown string for the command (like shutdown -s, there are plenty of references to shutdown shortcut commands for any of MS's OSs).
