Computer awake and sleep times...

I am looking for a way to have my computer automatically turn on and off at set times. Can anyone suggest a good way to do this? For the last 6 months I have been leaving the computer on but paranoia is getting to me as far as a fire risk goes and I am now looking to have it turn on before I need it and off once I am finished with it (overnight and mornings etc).

well for booting, have a look at the bios..

for shutting down, use a cron job
