Some BIOSes will actually allow you to set an alarm that will wake the computer at a certain time of day. I don't know specifically of a piece of kit that does this, but I would think that something exists. Lemee take a quick Google.....................

The only thing I found quickly was this.

Depending on how fancy you want to get, it would be possible to breadboard something with a 555 timer, or even your basic alarm clock.
