Sorry, I did not really answer the question. I would suggest that you set you script in a crontab. You could also have your program run and wait for localtime to equal the time you are waiting for. Another way if it does not need to be precise is you can do sleeps and check for the time if it is in your window run task if not go back to sleep.
