just put a script in cron which stops each one in turn, fairly simple stuff.

crontab:

Code:
10 0 * * * /path/to/my/script
myscript:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
service one stop
service two stop

Dear acid_kewpie,

I can't use cron because i m working on Amazon EC2 linux machine. cron wont work on this. so only we start all the service using daemon as daemon tools.

why won't cron work? Did you not think you should have told us in the first place if the most obvious solution for some reason isn't viable? Pretty sure it will work fine though.

Cron is the best solution. if it is not available for some reason... try using "at" but i would recommend that you figure out how to use cron on Amazon...

AT run a job just once

Cron
a good starting point would be "crontab" you can schedule your scripts there.
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cron for examples.

example:
10 00 * * * /path/to/your/script.sh

Really??? Because according to Amazon, cron works just fine:

And if you want to not use cron (for some reason), write a script and have it sleep for a certain amount of time, wake up and check the time. If it matches what you want, do something.
