Mmmm, Iīm a newbie, but I know that the command to shutdown is:

shutdown -h now

but I donīt know where you have to put it in order to execute it automatically at a specified time.:D

if you want it to be run at a specific time use the atd daemon. Though you may want to alter the command so that it gives you a few minutes to prepare for the shutdown and displays a message telling you that it is being run.

read the man page of shutdown for more options.

you need either APM or ACPI support in your kernel (power management in other words).

That has been asked before in these forums
