Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Auto Start & Shut Down

Here's what's going on. I want to leave my PC torrenting overnight, but I have to turn off my PC before I leave. So, I want to start a timer that will automatically start my PC up at 11:30, and shutdown at 5:30. Simple? Well, I have afew issues.

1: The login screen.
I have no password on my account, and everytime I resume from Hibernation, it takes me to the login screen, where it needs me to click on my account. When on this screen, none of the programs are doing anything. So, I need to get rid of that.

2: I have an auto shutdown in my Task Scheduler, and it works (Thankfully), so I don't need to worry about that. However, I need some way to wake it up, I cant find anything in Task Scheduler to do that. I tried in my BIOS, but whenever I enable that, it automatically starts up the PC when it has finished shutting down. I don't really want to buy, or download any 3rd party software for this, however, if the worst comes to the worst, I may think about downloading something.

That's it, thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for any advice or help.
