The fact that is on a schdule, always lead me back to task scheduler. I feel that some process, in task scheduler, is causing this problem.
Computers do not turn off on schedule unless a scheduled process is causing it.

Turn off your antivirus and firewall next Saturday, too. They are the source of so many problems

Read the tutorial given above and maybe you can turn it off, if that is the problem
