Win 7 Technet Download

I am new to Technet and awaiting the release of Windows 7. I can not figure out a way to schedule the download as I need to do it in the middle of the night. Does anyone have a suggestion or can point me somewhere that this was addressed?
Thanks

Not possible till the download links goes live then you can use MS download manager if you want.

Why do you have to wait till the middle of the night? This isn't a race to see who can get it at 12:01 is it?

On a side note you could setup a macro to do the downloading record mouse movements click on appropriate boxes etc.. but since the links are not active they may change position and your SOL.

Just start the download in the early Am and get it later that day as its going to be slow with 10,000 users flogging to download the iso's over the next few days.

I understand the "goes live" part. If you mean Microsoft File Transfer Manager, I don't think it can be scheduled to automatically run at a specific time. (As far as I know) Do you or someone know how to do this? Or is the some othere download manager that will work that can be scheduled?
Thanks

No horse in this race.
I have a satellite internet connection that has limited bandwidth. It provides me with a "free" download time between 2 am and 7 am. During this time frame it is almost impossible for me to do a manual download. The macro thing is a real pain. That is why I was hoping to find another method.
