Sleep mode for server to reduce power consumption

I have a ubuntu server running at home and I'd like to reduce my energy consumption.

I generally don't use the server overnight so it would be ideal if I could find a way to put it to sleep (or some other low power mode) overnight for certain hours.

Is this achievable?

Are there any other ways to cut my power consumption on the server?

well I'm lucky enough to have a bios that can start my machine at the hour I specify. and then I create a cron job to shutdown the machine at a specified hour. Check our BIOS to see if you have the same option.
